To create an election, similar to those used for Student Senate voting, go to https://secure.cornellcollege.edu/student-vote/

From there, log in using your Cornell username and password. Then click on "My Positions" on the left navigation bar. A position must be made before creating an election. Give the position a name, description, and set which students can vote, either all students, or those of a certain year.

Once your position is made, click on "Create Election." As with the position, you will need to give your election a name and description. The start and end dates should be done in the format of YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS as shown in the picture below. Then choose between either majority or single transferable vote and which students will be able to vote in this election. For "Add Position," choose the position you just made. Click "Create/Modify Election."
