Contact information

This section is added to profiles about state-specific offices. This includes articles like Governor of Texas or Alabama Treasurer. This section should feature the state office's mailing address and phone number. If an email address, fax number or any other contact information is available then those should be added to the section as well.

In order in which they should appear:

  • mailing address
  • phone number
  • fax number
  • email address

The main source for this information is the state office's website. For example, for Lieutenant Governor of Alabama the contact information can be retrieved from Alabama's Treasury website (Contact).


Below is an example of how this section would appear in an article. See also: Alabama Treasurer.
