Tronscan provides a way for Super Representatives to publish their information right where the voters are, on Tronscan!
Super Representatives can use this template to build a static page which will be shown on Tronscan. The link will be placed in the voting overview page right next to the name of SR.
The Super Representatives can manage their own content by editing files in the Github repository.

Every account in TRON’s network can vote for the Super Representatives they support. Voting requires TRON Power (TP), which is determined by the users’ frozen balance.
TP Calculation: 1 TP for 1 frozen TRX
Once you unfreeze your balance, an equivalent amount of TP is also lost, meaning that previous votes cast may no longer be valid. You can refreeze your balance to revalidate the votes.
Note: TRON network only records the latest votes, so every new allocation of votes you make replaces all previous records.
The final result of the above commands is 3 votes for witness1 and 7 votes for witness2.
# Freezing/Unfreezing Balance
## Why are Tokens Frozen?
The balance freezing mechanism is set up out of two considerations:
To prevent malicious spam transactions from clogging the network and causing delayed transaction confirmation.
To prevent malicious voting.
## Freeze/Unfreeze Mechanism
Once the balance is frozen, the user will receive a proportionate amount of TP and bandwidth. TP represents voting power whereas bandwidth points are used to pay for transactions. Their usage and means of calculation will be introduced in following sections.
Frozen assets are held in your frozen account and cannot be used for trading.
The fixed frozen duration is 3 days, after which you can unfreeze your balance any time you like manually. Balance unfrozen will be transferred back into your current account.
More TP and bandwidth points can be obtained by freezing more balance. The balance can be unfrozen after 3 days from the latest freezing.
The freezing command is as follows:
