This style guide describes how to add the Issues section to a school board election page on Ballotpedia.

Issues

The "Issues section" details any point(s) of contention that the election is experiencing (with voters, the district or otherwise), as well as any issue that the candidates are debating over. They should be split into different sub-sections depending on the topic, and not condensed under one heading.

Issues

Though Colorado school boards are officially nonpartisan, Douglas County has drawn mixed reactions for board members' outward party affiliation and support. In the 2009 and 2011 elections, the Douglas County Republicans endorsed the six current members — as well as resigned seventh member Dan Gerken.[1] Challenger for the seat in District G, Nicholas Land, cites one of his reasons for running as wanting to more accurately represent the community, as he feels the board is loyal to the Republican party.[2]
