How to Publish the Results of an Election via Elections Admin

You can access this feature from your MSL website. Only Content Editors with access to Elections Admin can access the Elections Admin window.

Once published, the results are displayed via the Elections List widget.

By default, the post name, the candidate's photo (if applicable), candidate's name, manifesto linkfield (if applicable), the stage, and the number of votes they had at the stage they were elected are displayed. 
If there is more than one place, the elected candidates appear in the order they were elected.
Contact to enable an additional Download Results field, displayed per-post, allowing the user to download a Results Sheet as an .xls file.

For further information, see Election Results.
