System Administrator users can import a list of choices from a file in CSV format. You need to use the correct field names for the import process to create new choices it finds in the file. Existing choices are not changed.
This import process creates a new choice for each First and Last Name values that doesn’t already exist.
As of version 220.127.116.11: the import process will try to load the candidates into the selected Election Event by creating a temporary contest to assign all the imported choices to. This contest can be removed later without removing the actual choice records.
You can either pre-create the required parties in the Elections Customize module or the import will attempt to create them for you using the short name from the file.
Fields can be added in any order to the csv file but must use the defined names below.
Field values can be blank except where noted. Extra fields in the file will be ignored.
