The Lookup module type allows an advocate to lookup their local, state, and federal officials by entering their zip code. To add the lookup module to your public facing site, hover your mouse over the Sites tab and select Standard Pages. Click on the “+ add module” button in the page section where you would like it to appear and select Lookup Officials/Candidates.
If a module option is faded, that means that it is not available in that module section.
