A Ballotpedia project is a way to organize the development and growth of a particular theme or topic on Ballotpedia. It allows editors to keep track of progress, inspire others to help finish a particular topic area, and helps topics that are covered on Ballotpedia develop in richness, quality and informational value.

The purpose of this page is to explain how you can volunteer on a project.

You can also go right to Ballotpedia:Project Directory, check out the Monthly Collaboration Project or e-mail editor@ballotpedia.org for further suggestions.
