If you have any problems or questions regarding the widget, please submit an issue.
How it works
On May 9th, the widget will cover your homepage with an unavoidable message that informs visitors about the impending vote and provides them with the opportunity to take action.
Between May 9th and the vote (date TBD), the widget will display at a smaller size, continuing to drive calls and emails to lawmakers without distracting users from your site.
Starting at midnight, the night before the vote, the widget will expand again. Try it out for yourself right here.
The widget is designed to appear once per user, per device, per day, but can be configured to display at a different interval. If you'd like to force it to show up on your page for testing, reload the page with
#ALWAYS_SHOW_RED_ALERT at the end of the URL.
Please take a look at widget.js if you want to see exactly what you're embedding on your page.
The widget is compatible with Firefox, Chrome (desktop and mobile), Safari (desktop and mobile), Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer 11.
If you define an object called
RED_ALERT_OPTIONS before including the widget code, you can pass some properties in to customize the default behavior.
