The RPI Elections dashboard for GM Week and Freshman Elections.

  • Some Updates based on GM Week 2019 (#107) * Add node SESSION_SECRET to config.js * Display Graduate Nominator Status The entry/exit date does not matter for grads * Remove candidate admin rights This overrides the CMS API call for candidates who happen to be members of the EC and WTG on CMS. Once somebody is added to the website they give up their admin rights until they are removed as a candidate. One thing to note is that I use a synchronous MySQL library instead of the default async one.
