The vote column allows board subscribers and team members to vote for items. Our API partially supports the vote column, so you can filter and read it, but you can't update or clear it via the API.

Filtering the vote column

Using the items_page object, you can easily filter a board's items by specific columns or column values. The table below contains the vote column's supported operators and compare values.

OperatorsCompare values
  • The user IDs to filter by
  • "No votes"
  • not_any_of
  • The user IDs to filter by
  • "No votes"
  • is_emptynull


    Pro tip

    items_page is only available in API version 2023-10 for now.

    The following example returns all items on the specified board where user 123456 voted in the vote column.

    query {
      boards (ids: 1234567890) {
        items_page (query_params: {rules: [{column_id: "vote", compare_value: [123456], operator:any_of}]}) {
          items {

    Reading the vote column

    You can query the vote column using the column_values object. The object has different fields based on which API version you are using. Column values v2 fields will be available in API versions 2023-10 and later, while column values v1 fields are only supported in versions 2023-07 and 2023-04.

    Column values v2

    The column_values object enables you to return column-specific subfields by sending a fragment in your query. Values for the vote column are of the VoteValue type.


    Pro tip

    column_values v2 fields are only available in API version 2023-10.

    query {
      items (ids:[1234567890, 9876543210]) {
        column_values {
          ... on VoteValue {


    column Column!The column the value belongs to.
    id ID!The column's unique identifier.
    text StringThe column's value as text.
    type ColumnType!The column's type.
    updated_at DateThe column's last updated date.
    value JSONThe column's JSON-formatted raw value.
    vote_count Int!The total number of votes.
    voter_ids [ID!]!The unique identifiers of users who voted.

    Column values v1

    You can return the data in a vote column in two different formats when you query by column values. The text field will return the total number of votes for an item as a simple string. The value field will return metadata about the column as a JSON string.


    Removing column values v1 support

    column_values v1 fields will no longer be supported in API versions 2023-10 and later.

      "text": "1",
      "value": "{\"votersIds\":[31855020],\"changed_at\":\"2022-08-05T12:00:00.000Z\"}"
