The quickest and easiest way to get started with importing voters into an online election is to download the voter import template by clicking here: https://app.choicevoting.co.uk/demo/voters_sample_.csv. This template file is in the CSV (Comma Separated Values) format which can be opened by all popular spreadsheet applications (Excel, Numbers, Google Spreadsheets, etc.). Starting from or using the template file is not required, but Choice Voting will only accept valid CSV files with the first row containing the following columns:
If the first row does not have the above listed columns in the exact order and spelling, then the import will fail.
To import a list of voters on a correctly formatted CSV file to an election, follow the steps below:
The import process will display any errors with the import file.
