How to vote on governance proposals


Moonwell Governance leverages both on-chain and off-chain voting mechanisms. Below is a step-by-step guide showing how to review and vote upon active proposals from the Governance Portal (on-chain) and the snapshot portals for Apollo and Artemis (off-chain).


In order to participate in voting you will need:
  • Web-3 wallet
  • ​Delegated WELL/MFAM tokens
  • GLMR/MOVR for gas (does not apply for Snapshot voting)
  • An active proposal to vote on
Your WELL/MFAM must be delegated prior to a proposal becoming active in order for your votes to count toward the current proposal.
