How Can I Contribute?

State laws governing initiatives

  • For every I&R state, there is an article about its laws governing the initiative. These articles should all be checked and improved.
  • One way to improve our law articles is to include more historical material about how initiative laws in the I&R states have changed over time.
  • Articles about specific statutes, such as those collected in Changes in 2007 to laws governing the initiative process. We should improve these articles where possible and make sure that the state I&R law articles incorporate the latest information.

Ballot access law cases

  • Add redlinks to articles about court cases we haven't covered yet.
  • Write articles about red-linked court cases.
  • Add to and improve existing court case articles.
