[edit] Template-info.png Template documentation

This template is meant to help format recall elections results in a similar manner to other election result boxes. There are two main types of code, and some potential additions based on situation.

Recall/Retain election

Recall elections that ask voters to recall or retain should use the following code:

{{Recall outcome
|title = <<This is the title of the election>>
|recall = <<This is the number of votes to recall>>
|retain = <<This is the number of votes to retain>>
}}

Note: This is the default code

Candidate election

Recall elections that ask voters to choice between candidates should use the following code:

{{Recall outcome
|replace = yes <<This turns on the candidate election>>
|title =  <<This is the title of the election>>
|winner = <<This is to indicate the election winner. Enter a "1", "2", "3", "4", or "5" corresponding with the number options below.>>
|1words = <<This is text of the first option. I.e. The first candidates name>>
|1vote = <<This is to indicate the vote total for the first option>>
|2words = <<This is text of the second option. I.e. The second candidates name>>
|2vote = <<This is to indicate the vote total for the second option>>
|3words = <<This is text of the third option. I.e. The third candidates name>>
|3vote = <<This is to indicate the vote total for the third option>>
|4words = <<This is text of the fourth option. I.e. The fourth candidates name>>
|4vote = <<This is to indicate the vote total for the fourth option>>
|5words = <<This is text of the fifth option. I.e. The fifth candidates name>>
|5vote =  <<This is to indicate the vote total for the fifth option>>
}}

Overturned

If the an election result is overturned in court, add the following code:

|overturned = yes <<This turns on the candidate election>>
|casename = <<This is the case name>>
|casenumber = <<This is the case number>>
|link = <<This is the link to the case>>

Note: There is a known bug with selecting overturned/unresolved and selecting a winner. To avoid this bug, do not select a winner.

Unresolved

If the election results are unresolved, add the following code:

|unresolved = yes

Note: There is a known bug with selecting overturned/unresolved and selecting a winner. To avoid this bug, do not select a winner.

Source

If you would like to have the template format the source for you, add the following code:

|source = <<This is the name of the source>>
|sourcelink = <<This is the source link>>
|sourcenote = <<This is for any additional notes you would like to add>>
