Suggest a link
If you believe that an article on Ballotpedia would be improved by the addition of an external link not currently included in the article, the fastest and easiest route to add the link is for you to add it directly. (Look at our help articles if you need a quick guide to the basics of editing Ballotpedia.)

However, if you need help adding the link you can nominate a link.

How to nominate

  • Send an email to
  • In the subject line of your email, type the name of the state to which the link is relevant.
  • In the body of your email:
  • Include the URL of the article on Ballotpedia where you think the link you are nominating should go. (If you don't include this link, your email will most likely be ignored. It is not adequate to say, "The alcohol measure in Montana", or similar, because that applies to more than one ballot measure.)
  • Include the URL of the link you think should be added.
  • If you want to, you can include some reasons why you think the link should be added.
How to add an external link


Nominating a link does not in any way guarantee that your proposed link will be added. But, if your link falls within the guidelines, and would be a service to readers, it will probably be added.

It may take up to a week for an acceptable link you nominate to be added.

If you go ahead and add the link yourself, there's no waiting! We do, however, review all edits made to
