About this template 
This is a template to notify registered voters whose votes are ineligible because their accounts quarify the requirement.
If you find an ineligible vote,
- add colon ":" to the vote (just before the "#") so as not to count that vote,
- notify the voter that his/her vote is not eligible because they voted with an ineligible account.
