August's Project of the Month

Summer is almost at an end but before the November elections begin, August brings with it two election dates with ballot measures. On August 5, both Michigan and Missouri voters will cast their "yes" or "no" votes on a grand total of six measures; one of which will be on the Michigan ballot. Alaskans will vote on August 19 to repeal or uphold SB 21, an oil tax cuts bill. This year, in addition to profiles on every certified measure, Ballotpedia brings you "Fast Facts."

Watch the video available here for a quick run-down on Alaska's Oil Tax Cuts Veto Referendum, Measure 1.

Who Runs the States

Hello! Thanks so much for your comment on Luke's profile. My name is Geoff Pallay and I'm the Director of Research and lead author of the study. I very much appreciate your feedback about the chart. Yes, you are right that we did not include in the legend a notion for third party/independent governors. This was predominantly due to spacing issues -- and the general understanding that readers would have about what grey would mean.

Thank you so much for your clarification about 1993. We chronicle situations of ties here -- but it seems as if you have unearthered another! We'll work on making the adjustment -- do you have any sources that you could perhaps provide as reference?

Finally, excellent point about the color/border comments. We'll make the necessary adjustments -- as you point out, an easy fix.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions or comments. Really appreciate your open feedback -- you clearly have a lot of firsthand knowledge about this kind of stuff! --Geoff Pallay 20:06, 16 July 2013 (CDT)
