JavaScript Events

VoteAmerica uses JavaScript event tracking and we pass these events up to the parent window of embeds.

These events are can be consumed by the parent window with a little bit of JavaScript. These events have a type of VoteAmericaEvent and can be listened for using the following JavaScript snippet.

window.addEventListener('VoteAmericaEvent', function(evt) {
  console.log(evt); // This can be replaced with any function
});
