August's Project of the Month

Fast-Facts-Logo-strikethrough.png
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.

Hi SMarie,

Have you had a chance to read this? It is posted on the "talk" page of the California Proposition 7 (2008) article. It's okay with me if you don't want to talk over your edits or reversions (where you delete information that others have placed in the article) on the article's talk page; it's up to you how you want to be seen as an editor. But, this does lead to a situation where others will tend to start treating you the same way; namely, just deleting your contributions without discussion. Trying to get other contributors to see your point of view--why you think something should be deleted, for example, is the type of behavior that often leads to a better article.
