RE: how to embed Yes and No responses in Question text

Title: Message
If  you just want information to follow the candidates, try using the "header candidate" type in the candidate tab of the race editor.  After the YES and NO candidates, add a new candidate and select as the candidate type "header".  You can then add whatever textual elaboration.  It will not wrap to the next column, will always follow the NO candidate, and will be within the race box.  No voting oval for OS or voting box for TS will appear.

Subject: how to embed Yes and No responses in Question text

On behalf of Bill Bowers in GBS:  Illinois school referendums are composed of two parts, the first part being a question, followed by Yes and No response, the second part a textual elaboration.  How can this be easily composed in GEMS?  It is not possible to automatically place header text on the ballot following a race, and the text in question is substantial enough to prevent composition as Header candidates from being practical.  Manual placement of header text on the ballot is possible, but not an ideal solution.  Currently, GBS is defining the elaboration text as a candidacy with no candidates.
