Revision Date:  11-15-21

Deleting a vote must be done through the Wix Editor.  Requires someone who has permission to access the Admn Page and the Wix Editor.

 

There are times when someone will either vote twice or not vote for all the choices.  In those cases, the vote will need to be deleted.  Rarely will a vote need to be modified.  It is better to delete the vote and contact the voter to have them to vote again.  This process can be used for deleting either an annual vote or a monthly vote.
