Change from checkbox to multiple select in Search Results

Change from checkbox to multiple select in Search Results

I had a checkbox on my search form that worked great like this:

<input type="checkbox" name="subdivision[]" id="ABACO BAY" value="ABACO BAY" />ABACO BAY

I recently changed this to a multiple select due to the amount of checkboxes to make it easier for the user like this:

<select name="subdivision[]" id="subdivision[]" class="selectivity-input" data-placeholder="..." multiple>
<option id="Alamar Village" value="Alamar Village" />Alamar Village</option>
<option id="Alejandria Es" value="Alejandria Es" />Alejandria Es</option>

The logic in the results page is like this and is no longer working? What do I need to change to allow for this to work correctly? I tried with an without [] and it did not help.

The logic looks right, and changing from checkbox to multiselect should be straightforward just naming them the same thing (with the brackets).

Are you sure the values are the same? I noticed the checkbox was all caps... maybe that is the difference? I'd probably have to debug, but I don't see any issues with what you have supplied.
