Select answers and publish results
The election voting period is over, the Trustees performed the tally and the Monitoring Committee validated the election and the results.
It is now time for the Decidim admin to select the prevailing answers that will be shown as winners of the election and to publicly publish the results.
When the admin accesses the election’s
Manage steps section, they will now see the calculated results.
Notice that the answers with the highest number of votes have the value highlighted in green, but for the moment all of them are marked as 'Not selected'.
