Candidate Actions #
Edit a candidate #
You may edit an existing candidate by clicking the edit icon as shown below.
Delete A Candidate #
Deleting a candidate will remove them from the election completely. You will have a warning prompt, after which this is non reversible.
Hide a candidate from the election #
Selecting this option when your election is live will hide the candidate from your voters selection choices for the time period specified. This option is often used where a candidate may have received a penalty and you wish to temporarily remove them from the election.
Hidden candidates cannot receive any votes for the duration of the time they are hidden.
Exclude a candidate from your final result #
Should one or more of your candidates withdraw from the election process, you may exclude this candidate from the final results.
If you exclude a candidate from being counted during a live election, the count will automatically exclude that candidate when your election closes. If your election has already closed, and you then need to exclude a candidate, go ahead and exclude the candidate, you will then need to initiate a recount from your results page.
