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.
Please contact Jaime Beran if you have any questions specific to this month's project.

Hi Jaime! Welcome to BP. BaileyL 10:03, 23 April 2013 (CDT)
Jaime, that 'new feature' has been in place since April 6, 2011 - over two years ago. The Career Profile parameter for Follow the Money was in place when the Template was first created on that date. Geoff, Bailey and Tyler have all been involved with that Template. At that time, At that time, Geoff was in charge of both Congress and State and redirected the CongLinks and GovLinks versions into LegisLinks for consistency, although they have since split for formatting reasons. Everything was discussed and approved, but apparently the updates to the Writing Guidelines slipped through the cracks. I later updated them when I came across them in November 2012. Tyler reverted them, and then shortly re-reverted them. Nothing since, other than a minor change Bailey made yesterday. Now eight months later this is suddenly a 'new feature' no one ever heard about? No. I suggest you talk to those involved rather than blaming me for things that simply didn't happen as you claim. I think the heat's getting to all of you. TomJx 10:45, 17 July 2013 (CDT)
