State Official Project, Stage 1: In this first stage, we're creating stub pages for all state officials.

Style notes

  • The primary page should be at "NAMEOFSTATE Governor", not "Governor of NAMEOFSTATE."Create a redirect page at the latter. If a page already exists with the latter, copy the page to the current nomenclature and add a redirect.
  • Titles of the offices should be capitalized in the title of the pages.
  • In the articles, unless you're talking about a specific person (e.g. Lieutenant Governor Joe the Plumber), the title of the office should be lowercase (e.g. lieutenant governor)
