When scrolling further than your current election choices in the sidebar on the election page, the block of choices gets a position: fixed; added to it... I assume it is meant to be "sticky" and stick to the top of the screen... there is no explicit top or bottom applied though so it actually gets stuck ~ 1000px from the top... That means it's invisible if your browser window isn't as tall as that (which is probably most users), otherwise you see this:

enter image description here

It's stuck, half obscured, to the bottom of the screen. It also has no background (it's in a white container when it's static in the sidebar) so it makes a bit of a mess over the footer.

Reproduced on the most recent Chrome, Firefox and Safari on macOS.

  • no error here OS X 10.11.3 on Chrome Version 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit). Worked fine at my office too on Firefox on Windows (not sure version off hand)

  • @Ryan no error as in it is sticky as it's supposed to be or you just don't see it at all?

  • Although on Firefox they disappear after the top of the container is scrolled by. It goes to fixed but is below the screen position. Something is definitely off May 31, 2017 at 21:30

    @Zach yeh that's what I'm talking about... it's only below your screen position if your browser window is less than ~1000px high (you can zoom out to see it if you can't get your window big enough)

  • I'm guessing it's doing some failed script based on feature detection May 31, 2017 at 21:33
