How to Set a Voter’s Vote Weight

Now that the weighted voting setting is enabled, a “Vote Weight” input will appear when adding (see: How to Add a Voter) or editing a voter (see: How to Edit a Voter).

Additional Notes

  • If you disable weighted voting after assigning a weight to any voter, then that voter’s vote will still be weighted. Each voter will need to have their vote weight manually set to 1 before disabling weighted voting.
  • A voter’s vote weight cannot be changed after their ballot has been submitted
  • Weights must be an integer between 1 and 99,999. Please contact support if you need to assign weights beyond 99,999.
