How To Vote

To vote for a block produder, submit a transaction to the voteproducer action of the eosio account.

In the example shown below useraaaaaaaa votes for producers userbbbbbbbb and usercccccccc.

(async () => {
  await api.transact({
    actions: [{
      account: 'eosio',
      name: 'voteproducer',
      authorization: [{
        actor: 'useraaaaaaaa',
        permission: 'active',
      }],
      data: {
        voter: 'useraaaaaaaa',
        proxy: '',
        producers: ['userbbbbbbbb', 'usercccccccc']
      },
    }]
  }, {
    blocksBehind: 3,
    expireSeconds: 30,
    broadcast: true,
    sign: true
  });
})();

useraaaaaaaa can also delegate their vote to a proxy. In the example shown below, useraaaaaaaa delegates their vote to the proxy userbbbbbbbb.

(async () => {
  await api.transact({
    actions: [{
      account: 'eosio',
      name: 'voteproducer',
      authorization: [{
        actor: 'useraaaaaaaa',
        permission: 'active',
      }],
      data: {
        voter: 'useraaaaaaaa',
        proxy: 'userbbbbbbbb',
        producers: []
      },
    }]
  }, {
    blocksBehind: 3,
    expireSeconds: 30,
    broadcast: true,
    sign: true
  });
})();

Note that if the proxy field is used, the producers list must be empty, and vice verse, if the producers list is used, the proxy field must be an empty string.
