Howto vote for a specific delegate
« on: January 31, 2015, 05:44:06 AM »

OK I know the voting is done by transferring your stake to yourself, but where do you specify who you're voting for if you want to vote for a specific delegate? I see the 4 choices in the drop down list of the transfer form (all | none | random | recommended), but there must be a way to only for for one?

This is actually the first time I've attempted to vote, and it's far from obvious. This really needs to change.

If there were a sticky post with simple stuff like this it would really help newbies.

Perhaps I've figured it out, or possibly one way to do it:

1) on the wallet's delegate page click the un-approve all button
2) find the delegate you want to vote for and click the thumbs up icon on the right

Then just transfer your stake to yourself and you've voted. Of course you can approve more than one delegate this way too

Does that about cover it?

Thanks to both of you for your replies. As you can see I kindof jumped the gun in making the OP, as I did finally figure it out. I went to the wiki first but somehow missed it, probably b/c it was under the "Getting Started" heading. I did use the search with "voting" & "delegate voting" but that did produce the page you linked xeroc.

Thanks again for all your help guys.
