How to add votes

To add new votes, edit Wiktionary:Votes/Active and insert votes using the code below.

|Dec 9|2017-11/First vote example|
|Dec 10|2017-11/Second vote example|

This example links to "Wiktionary:Votes/2017-11/First vote example" and "Wiktionary:Votes/2017-11/Second vote example".


  • Omit the "Wiktionary:Votes/" prefix.
  • Dates like "Dec 9" indicate when the votes are scheduled to end (not the start date).
  • Use three-letter month names (Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec).
  • Order the votes by end date, from earlier to later (this is the order: Jan 1, Jan 2, Jan 3, etc.)
  • Add a | at the end of every vote. The vote result is added after the vertical bar when the vote ends.
