    Is this what are you trying to achieve? 

    If so, add this CSS code to visual multi select widget Custom CSS field:

    .ms-container .ms-selectable li.ms-hover, .ms-container .ms-selection li.ms-hover {

        background-color: red!important;


    .ms-elem-selection.ms-selected {



    .ms-container ms-selected li.ms-hover, .ms-container .ms-selection li.ms-hover {

        color: #fff!important;


    Add this CSS code to all visual multi select widgets on your form.

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71591995887985 

    Feel free to test it and clone it.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
