Tip! If you are uploading images or ads, they will need to be hosted. You will need to insert the hosted image URLs into the import document.

Tip! When creating a ballot with Groups of Categories or just Categories, the Category Type is a required input field. This is part of our integration with Google. Categories with the types of Business or Place will utilize Google suggestions. Categories with the types of Person, Event, Product, Creative Work, or Other will provide suggestions of write-ins that other users have submitted previously.

Tip! Once your ballot is imported, you still have the ability to edit any of your ballot information!

You can also start over and re-import your ballot by removing all groups or categories from your ballot by selecting the three dot overflow menu and clicking Remove. Here is a help article that will walk through this process as well.
