It's spring time.

Spring time signals just one thing here at Ballotpedia - Primary election season is underway!

It's April, and primary elections have already come to pass in both Texas and Illinois. The remaining U.S. states will host primary elections over the next few months.

Are you ready to cast your primary election ballot? Do you know who you're voting for?


Just in case you still need to brush up on candidates and election information, this month we're highlighting Ballotpedia’s expansive election coverage brought to you by our major content projects. Ballotpedia is working diligently to cover six different types of elections in 2014: congressional, state legislative, state executive officials, statewide and local ballot measures, municipal government and school boards elections. Within these pages, you will find election overviews, filing deadlines, election dates, voter registration deadlines, candidate, incumbent and ballot measure information and original analysis.

Cast your vote this primary election season!

Chewy, you are a machine! Gardengnome 11:21, 2 July 2008 (EDT)

To all active contributors: I've made a template to put on the pages of ballot measures that will not appear on the ballot. To apply it, you type {{no}} at the beginning of the article.

I am also encouraging everyone to remove category tags at the bottom of 2008 articles that say "2008 ballot measures" and "NAME OF STATE ballot measures" and replace those with these category tags:

  • [[Category:Did not make ballot in Idaho]]
  • [[Category:Did not make ballot in 2008]]

Both of those categories will become subcategories of the bigger categories.

Why did I do this?

  • I believe it is helpful to the reader to immediately see at a glance that a ballot measure is not going to be on the ballot.
  • The Category:2008 ballot measures category has nearly 600 articles in it right now--most of which will not actually be on the ballot. If we take out the ones that aren't going to be on the ballot, we make the category more meaningful.

Please check it out and see if you agree with the change.January 15:26, 2 July 2008 (EDT)


Colorado Ballot Measures

Hi Chewy, I'm fixing up various Colorado measures overview pages that need organization, etc. I noticed there are a couple pages, including the Colorado 1974 ballot measures page, that had measures listed which I can't find information on. Could you let me know what your resource is for those when you get a chance? It would help so I can make pages for these measures with at least a small description of the measures. Thanks!

Nevermind! Sorry, found what I needed!

The templates are looking really good! Kristinpedia 15:30, 30 January 2009 (CST)
