"To do list"

Hi PaulD, I started a "Ballotpedia:To do list" in the hopes that it will provide an easy way for people unfamiliar with BP to start adding and/or organizing content. I think it can also serve as a touchpoint for regular BP contributors to make sure they are all on the same wavelength. Let me know what you think! Gardengnome

Ballot measures by year

Hi PaulD, I'm trying to update the "YEAR ballot measures" (for example: 1982 ballot measures) pages to be a complete list of the measures in each year. Would you be able to help out by adding Massachusetts measures to the year lists? Gardengnome 18:06, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! Gardengnome

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!

Massachusetts Sensible Marijuana Policy Initiative (2008)

Hey paul, I just wanted to touch base with you. I think I removed some of your edits to the opposition section as well as the controversy section. I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know I didn't mean to ruffle any feathers, Im just trying to keep the page more fact based as much as I can rather then he said this and she said that quotes. It looks like both of these sides may say some things that are a bit stretching the truth to put it lightly. If possible it would be awesome if we try to source direct sources to the facts/studies/endorsements referred to by them rather then either of thier opinions. If Im out of line or deleted too much accidently and you really need something in there either hit me up on my discussion page or the page for the article and we can get it taken care of. thanks -Hitman6999 07:51, 20 September 2008 (UTC)


They sure had a lot of ballot measures in Alaska about whether or not to move the state capital, didn't they? There are still a few we don't have articles about yet. I'm planning to write a summary of the whole deal when we have articles about all the specific ones. January 12:00, 10 December 2008 (CST)
