This page is a content-and-style guide about how to write about the personal life of an incumbent state legislator or a candidate for state legislature.

It is appropriate to add a short section to your article about the person's personal/family life.

This section might include:

  • Basic information about spouse and children.
  • Membership in groups.
  • Other notable information.

Take particular care in writing this section. Only include information that is commonly and publicly available, and always use citations.

The name of the section in your article should be "Personal."
