Voting Record

Elected officials or citizens can record and display their votes or the votes of one or more elected officials they follow.

Voting Record will allow recording of votes cast for display and reference purposes. Elected officials can record and display their votes and citizens can track and display the votes of an elected official they follow.

Votes are entered on a dashboard widget. A vote management page is available from the posts menu. Recent votes are shown by adding <?php recent_votes(); ?> in your theme templates or [RECENT-VOTES] within a text widget. You can show a search votes form by using the shortcode [SEARCH-VOTES] on a page or post. Options for Voting Record include:

Options Include:

  • The option to specify a primary voter (if most or all of the votes being tracked are from one person).
  • How many recent votes to show - limited by number of votes or number of days. This includes a "Days plus" option which displays the specified number of days plus any extra votes to reach a minimum list size specified by the user (defaults to 5).
  • Output for the recent votes and the search results are specified by templates. Each template contains a variable to specify what should precede the list, a variable to specify what should follow the list, a variable to show what should display if there are no results, and a template of how the list items should be formatted. List items allow the use of the following template tags - {bill} to display the name of the bill, {vote} to display the vote cast, {voter} displays the name of the voter, {date} displays the date the vote was cast, {desc} displays the description, {result} displays the overall pass/fail outcome of the vote, {tally} displays the overall vote tally. In addition to those standard tags, the header and footer for the search results can use the {count} tamplate tag to display a count of the results from the current search.
