1. Create ballot papers
Go to the POLYAS Online Voting Manager at configure.polyas.com, create a new project, and choose “Live voting”. Give your live voting a title (for instance General Assembly 2020). Now choose the “Ballot papers” tab.
2. Settings for the vote
If you click on the gear icon in the ballot paper area, you can edit the detailed settings and set the rules for the vote:
- Choose the “Settings” tab.
- Decide on the ballot paper type: Candidate election, vote, closed list election, and other election types.
- Determine the number of available votes per ballot paper and per row and if applicable per list.
3. Edit further settings
Format: You can make further changes in the settings such as addition of rows and columns in the “Format” tab. Here you can determine whether the column title or headline on the ballot paper should be shown. When you have set everything up, simply click on accept to save your changes.
Order lists: Here you can move the order of the lists if you have set up a ballot paper with many lists.
Import: Simultaneously upload numerous ballot papers in Excel files. Simply use our template for this purpose. The import function is only available before the completion of the payment process.
Export: Download the ballot papers for your documentation as Excel files. The export function is only available before the completion of the payment process.
4. Ballot papers in the Live Voting Cockpit
You can create or edit new ballot papers after payment in contrast to online voting. In addition, you have the option to set out information for your voters, for example the agenda or break times. For this purpose, first log into the Live Voting Cockpit where you manage your electronic voting. You will find the link to the app as well as the password in the “Overview” tab of the Online Voting Manager after the payment process.
Click on the “Ballot papers” tab in the Live Voting Cockpit. You can create new information and ballot papers using the “+” symbol. By clicking on “. . .” you reach the settings. Functions “Settings”, “Format”, and “Sort lists” are available here as in the Online Voting Manager.
On the left sidebar, you find all of the already created ballot papers and information. You can edit them until you make them available to your members. Use the filter function and the search bar to find individual ballot paper or information.
