How to Add a Voter Popup Widget to a Page

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

Setting up the widget initially displays the specified HTML content. To create a true popup, target it with JavaScript and CSS, turning it into an alert or banner that fits into your MSL website's content.
