The project

Campaign donors

This section is added to profiles about state officials, for example incumbents. This includes articles like North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple and Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee.

This section uses the template {{SEO donor box 2012}}. Prior to 2013, the project used {{SEO donor box}}, which template allowed for the display of campaign donor information for up to four election years.

Additionally, the template {{Comprehensive donor history}} is added at the beginning of the ==Campaign donors== section. This addition also includes adding a line in the infobox that links down to the donors section. For this edition, simply add |Campaign $ = CAREER TOTAL to the infobox.
