About Race Manager

The Race Manager allows you to bulk edit or delete races and see–at a glance–the status of and data about your races. For example, when your primary election is completed, Race Manager will allow you to reset all the races as General in one operation, or if you wanted to see which races were initiatives rather than contested you could use the filter. The Race Manager provides a columnar summary of the following data: Primary or Open (P/O); number of candidates (#C) number of questions (#Q), the designated district (District) the district type, and the number of selections permitted for the race (#S)

Using Race Filters
Note: Filters are hidden until you click the word Filters to expand the section. Race filters permit sorting and selection of a specific race or group of races based on a single or multiple criteria. Once you have selected criteria, only races meeting that criteria will be displayed. Should you wish to search by name, i.e., New Jersey Senate, enter the name in the field next to Search this page:. Once you have selected your filters, or completed the search field, click Filter .
