As the project develops, some pages may be rapidly created and may need to be revisited at a later point. For more on articles that are missing components or may need improvement, click here.

Organizing articles by county

In California, local ballot measures are organized according to their county. This seems to work well. There are 58 counties in California, and correspondingly, 58 articles, each called a variant of El Dorado County, California ballot measures. These articles are organized into a template: {{California counties}}. We also have {{California election dates}} because there are so many of them.

Any specific local ballot measure article is then listed on the page for the county. This anchors the work and gives a reliable archive built over time.

The preferred title for a county-based article is in the form "COUNTY NAME County, STATE ballot measures." The county template for the state in question should be included at the end of the article.

County templates

Here's a list of all the county templates:

Volunteers

Ballotpedia is looking for volunteers to cover local ballot measure elections in each of the 50 states.

Currently, Ballotpedia staff covers all local ballot measure elections in California and selected local ballot measures in other states on hot-button political topics. Local ballot measure elections occur in all 50 states.
