September's Project of the Month

State-Legislative Scorecards-Badge.png

This September, we highlight an exciting project brought to you by our State Legislative Project on state legislative scorecards.

Ballotpedia is in the process of developing an encyclopedic list of published scorecards. It is Ballotpedia’s goal to incorporate all available scorecards regardless of ideology or number. On Ballotpedia, we define scorecards as those produced by newspapers, interest groups, think tanks, partisan groups, 501c3s and 501c4s that provide relative rankings and covers all state or federal lawmakers. The goal of this project is to provide a comprehensive list of legislative scorecards for each state and to ensure that descriptions are unbiased and accurate. Have you seen a scorecard we've missed? Please email us at scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
Please include the following in your e-mail:

  • The link to the scorecard
  • The name of the organization
  • The state
  • The year or session the grades were given


3. Find an article you'd like to improve.
4. Start editing!

You can also view tutorials on editing, or contact us.

How to request a block

Hey, I don't know exactly how to request a block but user David_W_Bowen has contributed only vandalism to ballotpedia. His user contrib page should be sufficient to block him. Will4274 12:18, 26 September 2012 (CDT)

Thanks for the fixes. So, no space between TEXT and ref tag. Got it. I've had problems with using < ref refname=xyz >, such that the entire paragraph containing it does not render.

Appreciate guidance/reference on this (the wikipedia markup page failed to illuminate).

That explains it. I was doing "refname" rather than "name". Thank you for explaining it.
