The Rutgers university Senate reached out to us to handle the design, development, and maintenance of their new website using our Rutgers Website Template. We used the flexible features of the WordPress CMS to create custom post types representative of all aspects of the Senate, including senators, committees, charges, reports, and meetings. This allows the Senate web team to quickly and easily add new content to the site in a way that interacts with every aspect of the Senate, such as profile pages cataloging each senator’s committee memberships and attendance on a per-term basis.
After the site’s November 2019 launch, new functionality was required to host the virtual Senate Executive Committee elections due to restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. To facilitate this, we built a custom form that could be updated in real time to allow for multiple rounds of voting. Senators were prompted to simultaneously submit their votes via WebEx call, successfully holding the virtual election to its fullest extent.
