Hello Michaeltleslie, Thank you for your edits to Syed Asif's page. Please take a moment to review Ballotpedia's citation policy.KaitlinE (talk) 21:38, 6 July 2014 (CDT)

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!

Thank you for your contributions to MD Rabbi Alam's candidate profile! However, I could not verify the information that you added to Alam's "Personal" section, and I could not find a citation, so I had to remove it until further verification. Feel free to add the information back with the appropriate reference. Please see the template above for more information on our citation process.
