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!

Please see Talk:Mike Enzi. The Advocate was in error. I fixed the sections in both the Vitter and Enzi articles, and you restored the incorrect version without even contacting me for discussion. If you google the key phrase, you will see that every other website which originally copied that has now corrected it. I expect you to do the same. This is an encyclopedia.

As I said, there's a difference between keeping the original insurance plan (what The Advocate stated) and keeping a subsidy (what the bill and Vitter's own press release stated). That's why those sources originally using The Advocate's phrasing of "optional for lawmakers and their employees to continue receiving the subsidized premium health benefits plans just like most large businesses" later corrected their statements. I am satisfied with your corrections to the Enzi and Vitter articles, even if you want to pretend I made some totally different 'misinterpretation'. Anyone who googles for 'stop congress exempt' or similar can see the wild claims of the "conservative" groups and press. You may claim the National Review is a "bias source" (sic), but when even it feels the need to publicly debunk such claims.... TomJx 02:54, 24 October 2013 (CDT)

Hi there

The reason I removed the tags on the Maine and Ohio Marijuana pages is to stop them appearing on the page "marijuana on the ballot" which only lists actual (as in not proposed) ballot measures.

If there is another way to remove it from this page without removing the tags please do so

Hey KaitlinE,

I am not great at these. I just left an new edit that does not allude to Jones current candidacy but does have this citation from a Los Angeles magazine. Can you look at it and help me get it right? Thanks!
