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:
How to Create Questions for Your Ballot
Click the Questions tab of your ballot, then select Add New Question
Fill out all the relevant fields and Save your question
How to Add Choices to a Question

The choice you created will show up on the question. Repeat this process until you’ve built all the choices needed for your question.
