Setup Voter Registration #
When setting up an election, you may not have your voter information readily available, and will therefore be unable to either upload a list of voters, or manually add voters to your election.
Using the voter registration system will enable your voters to pre register for your election.
Getting Started with voter registration #
To begin the setup process, in your election dashboard navigate to Settings > voter registration as shown below.
What happens during voter pre registration? #
Once you have activated this feature, voters will be able to navigate to your election login page (details of where to find the url below)
You may advertise this url using an email blast, or on a private web page only accessible to your voters, we don’t advise promoting this in a public space.
As your voters register, they will receive an email asking them to authenticate themselves prior to becoming added to your voter list.
Once they have authenticated themselves, they will be added to your voter list, and a voter key and ID will be generated.

Important notes about voter pre registration. #
- Voters may only pre register BEFORE you launch your election, after which time the registration system will be locked, and voters will no longer be able to register.
- Registration during a live election can only be activated on request to Choice Voting Support, and requires that your organisation is approved for invoice payments.
- It is the election administrators responsibility to ensure any voter that has pre registered is eligible to vote in your election.
