Hello Lexington62,

I reverted your edits made to Thomas Coyne's page because the information you added did not include a reference. I conducted my own search online but was unable to find any information regarding John Buckley moving forward in the race without Coyne. If you can provide an appropriate source, please feel free to re-add the information I removed. Below is a template that gives more information on sourcing info. If you have any questions, let me know! Thank you!

Thank you for contributing to Ballotpedia.

You recently added some information to an article without providing a source such as a citation or footnote.

It is important to provide a citation or reference to justify adding information so that readers can assess the legitimacy of the information for themselves.

This tutorial explains in detail how to add footnotes.

Ballotpedia staff has added references to the information you recently added on Ballotpedia. In the future, the information you add will be removed if you do not provide a source.

Thank you!

Hi Jeff,

The colors associated with each party were chosen by our editorial staff to create continuity on Ballotpedia. You can view them on this page: List of political parties in the United States

Thanks,

Hi Jeff,

We usually only include the results of the previous election of each senator on the election page. Full election histories can be viewed on the winning candidate's page.

Thanks,

Kelly

Hi Jeff,

The information that you sent to me has been forwarded to the appropriate staff writer on the State Legislatures Project. Please give the writer a fews days to add the information.

Thanks again for your help!

Hi Jeff,

I believe Ballotpedia's editorial staff chose yellow for the Libertarian Party because the national Libertarian Party uses yellow: http://www.lp.org/. As far as the Constitution and Mountain parties, I'm not sure how the colors were chosen. In any case, we have to differentiate the parties by color so our readers can quickly and easily see that the candidates are from different parties. Blame the Rs and Ds for picking the "good" colors.

I will forward your note to our editors about missing other third party candidates and creating dots for third parties that we do not currently list.

Thanks!

Hi Jeff,

BP's editors told me that we rarely make new dots because smaller parties tend to only last for a short amount of time, they change their names or combine with another party. There are also some parties where only one candidate is running under that title. If you would like to propose specific dots/party pages, you can do so by emailing editor@ballotpedia.org and our editors will take it into consideration.

Hope that helps.

Kelly, Thanks. How do you modify this RSS feed so that it searches on my name and "delegate" instead of "house?"

All of the news feed articles have something to do with real estate transactions and nothing to do with my campaign, but today's Martinsburg Journal article about me DID NOT show up: http://www.journal-news.net/page/content.detail/id/616220/Constitution-Party-announces-candidate-in-59th-District-race.html?nav=5006

Thanks.
