Retrieving the text of previous ballots

How do I retrieve the text of previous ballots?

At https://voting.swarmnetwork.org you will find the {ballot-address} smart contract for each ballot when clicking the “i" icon of each ballot.

Go to the "Events” tab in etherscan with https://etherscan.io/address/{ballot-address}#events , then scroll down to the earliest transaction of the contract. Click the Txn Hash to see more details about the transaction.

The first event has details about the ballot instantiation. Click to see More. One of the data (typically the last one) will be the only one to have a 32 bytes {TXID}. It should be labelled specHash.

Copy the hash and then go to https://archive.secure.vote/0x{TXID}.json That will get you the “BallotSpec”, which you can download and open it with a text editor to see the details
