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


A candidate page should include an infobox located in the top-right corner of the page. This infobox details a candidate's political, professional and educational history, along with other biographical details such as a photo and links to relevant websites. The infobox form should be added at the very beginning of the article in the edit box.

Every row of the infobox is an opportunity to include another detail about the board member or candidate. Fill out as many rows as possible with the information available.
