Political party codes

NationBuilder strives to provide strong support for political organizing wherever you are and regularly adds country or province-specific parties when there is a user base to support that. If you have enabled voter specific features, the political parties you see in profiles are determined by the country listed in Settings > Contact and by the state or province listed in Settings > Political > Office.

When importing voters, you must use the one-letter code for the voter's political party.

When importing vote history, political party is only included if the ballot received was unique to a particular political party. For example, in many U.S. primary elections, voters can receive either a Republican ballot, a Democratic ballot, or an Independent ballot. During a vote history import, the entire name of the political party must be imported - spelled exactly as it appears below.
