What are ballot questions?

Your ballot is composed of questions, question instructions, and choices.

  • Questions are what you ask your voters to weigh in on. For example, “Who do you think should be the next treasurer of our group?”

  • Question instructions give more context to your voters and are a good place to include any suggestions. (e.g. “Please read all biographies before selecting your choice for treasurer”)

  • Question choices are the options your voters are able to choose (e.g. Laura Newman, Brad Stevens, Sharon Pickett, Marcus Beacon). Each question you build on a ballot will include several choices.

Here are some common examples of question titles, instructions, and choices:
