Hi Ballotpedia Volunteers!

Ballotpedia is sponsoring an old-fashioned Wiki Barnraiser on Thursday, August 2 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. and you are warmly invited to participate.

What will happen during this Barnraiser?

  • Volunteers at computer desktops and laptops around the country will point their browsers to Ballotpedia starting at 2:00 p.m. CST (central time) on Thursday, August 2.
  • Before long, these volunteers will be editing articles like crazy and experience a profound sense of accomplishment.

Really? How do green volunteers turn into accomplished editors?

And then what?

And what happens then?

  • By now, the volunteer will be stunned with admiration and will want very much to be a part of this amazing resource.

What will the volunteer want to do?

  • The volunteer will want to practice a little bit in minor ways before doing something big, like starting a new article.

How will the volunteer get some practice editing?

What's the volunteer supposed to do then?

We'd appreciate it if you would then visit the Barnraiser Featured Project page and proceed from there.

If that doesn't strike your fancy, though, you could:

What if the thought of starting an article makes the volunteer nervous?
