This page is a content-and-style guide about how to write the "Qualifications" section of a state legislative election overview article.

Note: This is an optional section. You may not be able to find the research to support such a section.

Most states have certain minimum qualifications that must be met in order for someone to run for state legislator, or be seated in the state legislature if they win election. These minimum qualifications may include an age limit, residency requirement, citizenship requirements, and so on.

Whatever the qualifications are, if you can discover them, they go in this section.

Here's an example of a "qualifications" section.
