How to vote on snapshot! GenomesDAO Governance

What is snapshot?

Snapshot is a decentralized voting system that allows DAO’s to vote on various initiatives or proposals related to a project’s future direction. DAO members hold governance tokens that represent their right to vote. Voting does not require gas (it’s free); you only need to sign your transaction from your wallet.

How does GenomesDAO use snapshot?

As a DAO member, you will be able to vote on current proposals and draft your own proposals. For this article, we will focus on DAO governance voting via snapshot.

How can I vote on snapshot?

Step 1: Go to In the search bar, type in GenomesDAO.

Step 2: Connect your wallet to snapshot. You need to connect the wallet that contains your GNOME tokens; otherwise, you won’t be able to vote.

Once connected, your wallet address or ENS name populate the previous button.

Step 3: Click the “Join” button to join the DAO’s snapshot

Step 4: Once you’ve joined the GenomesDAO snapshot group, you should be able to view current and past governance proposals.

Step 5: After clicking on the proposal, you should view the “briefing,” which summarizes the governance proposal. Then, select the choice your favorite choice.

Step 6: Confirm your vote by clicking the blue “vote” button. Lastly you will need to sign the transaction from your wallet or ledger.

That’s it! Pretty easy.

If your GNOME tokens are LP’ed in sushi or staked on harvest, that’s fine. Our voting strategy will still be able to calculate all your governance tokens.
