Nomination and Voting Ballot vs. Voting Ballot

Second Street features two different types of ballots you can use to engage your audience. You can also think of these as Single Phase vs. Multi-Phase Ballots.

Voting Ballots

A Voting Ballot is a ballot that is run in one voting phase.  Within this ballot type, you can create a ballot that allows for:

- Seeded Entrants and Write-Ins

- Write-Ins Only

- Seeded Entrants Only

Nomination & Voting Ballots

A Nomination & Voting Ballot is a two phase ballot that allows for separate nomination and voting phases.

During the nomination phase, you can allow users to nominate:

- Seeded Entrants and Write-Ins

- Write-Ins Only

- Seeded Entrants Only

Once the nomination phase is over, you as the admin will decide which nominees move on to the voting phase where users will vote to determine the winners.
