State office profiles

For all state offices, such as Governor of Alabama or Nevada State Treasurer, use the {{SEO office infobox}} template.

Note: This replaces the previous state office infoboxes used prior to April 2013, which had the naming convention of "STATENAME SEO infobox."

Example:

Code:

  • Copy and paste the code below. Fill in available information. If information is not available, leave the section blank. For usage details, click here.
{{SEO office infobox
|State = 
|Office=
|Office type = 
|Image = 
|Office website = 
|Budget = 
|Budget year = 
|Term limits = 
|Length of term = 
|Authority =
|Selected = 
|Current officeholder = 
|Partisan = 
|Officeholder image = 
|Assumed office = 
|Compensation =
|Next election =
|Last election=
|Other offices = 
}}

Incumbent profiles

Unlike state offices, incumbent profiles should include the {{polinfobox}} template. Below is the code which should be added to all incumbent profiles. For usage details, click here.

Example:

Minimum implementation (stub):

  • Project

  • Political party
  • Position
