How to Configure an Election List Widget for Optimised Voter Page Load

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

To enhance performance in large elections with many posts, MSL recommends deselecting the Show Candidacy Options and Show Edit Link checkboxes on the Election List widget before voting begins. This alleviates the need for the system to verify user candidacy and permissions, respectively, reducing the load on your MSL website.

For further information, see Elections Widgets.
