Election in Hungary 2018: Pre-Election Period

Are you going to conduct trials prior to the election evening? 
We will do one simulation for the election evening. Please join us at the specified date by opening your widget directly and add the string &seasonArchive=s2014 to find the visualisation of the data without interfering with the widgets you have already included.
For example:
[…]/index.html?competitionId=pw_hu&language=en&standalone=barsList&seasonArchive=s2014

Date for simulation:

  • Thursday, April 5th, 11am

What do the widgets currently display?
At the moment, the widget with percentages is displaying the latest surveys. If you don’t configure anything else, your widget will switch to live on Sunday, April 8th at 7pm.
Advice: If you want to control whether survey- or live-results are displayed in your widgets, you can add several variables to the URL:

  • ?resultType=auto [default]
    Displays surveys until 7pm, switches to Live afterwards, as soon as results are available.
  • ?resultType=survey
    Displays surveys only, will NOT switch to live.
  • ?resultType=live
    Displays predictions and projections as soon as results are available (will be empty until that time)
