Ballotpedia:Live chat with a staff member!
Welcome to the Ballotpedia live chat! We’re available from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. CST, Monday-Friday. Just click here to get started.
At the moment, we're using Google docs to interact with our readers. If you have a question (and you don't want to wait for it to be answered during our weekly podcast!), you can type it into the document and we will reply to you as soon as we can. Please be patient - you'll be talking to a real person (not an autobot) so it may take a few minutes for us to get you all of the information you're looking for.
We're happy to answer questions you may have or direct you to more information about:
- The 2012 Elections
- State Executive Officials
- State Legislatures
- State Ballot Measures
- Local Ballot Measures
- Recall Elections
- Interstate Compacts
Remember: This is a non-partisan website. Ballotpedia staff cannot weigh-in with an opinion on specific races. We will not endorse candidates or voice opinions on ballot measures. Our responses will be strictly limited to factual research questions. You can read more about our site-wide policies here.
Examples of questions might be:
- When are polls open?
- What is the filing deadline for ballot measures?
- How many years does a state agriculture commissioner serve?
- Can you recall a state legislator in Arkansas?
- How many incumbents running for Congress faced a primary challenge?
- How many signatures are needed to get a measure on the ballot in Ohio?
We'll do our best to help you out, and if we can't find an answer, we'll be sure to point you in the right direction. Thanks for participating!
