Ashleigh, I just purchased this Election product and I am unable to open it. It says 502 Bad Gateway. It is probably a problem on my end. But is there any way you can email the file to me?? firstname.lastname@example.org
No, I tried very hard to not have any bias in the product (I probably need to add that to the product description). I tried to not get into the issues as much as elections in general. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
