Mistaken inquiry

You edited my talk page saying I had inquired about something in Massachusetts. I think you may be confused. I edited the "inquiry" page by adding sections. I did not inquire about Massachusetts.

I did inquire about citations, which has yet to be answered.

New Mexico

I noticed that in the chart for New Mexico 2010 ballot measures, you used the code in the chart for CICA. However, in New Mexico, there are no initiated constitutional amendments. So, by definition, there would never be an CICA on that state's ballot. The Ballotpedia article, States, has a list of 18 states where citizens can initiate constitutional amendments. If a state isn't on that list, you can know without further examination that any ballot measure on the ballot in that state is not an CICA. I didn't fix it because I'm not sure if you made the mistake because you were in error about what kinds of ballot measures are allowed in New Mexico, or because you didn't have the right code.

Hi Al,

Thanks for covering my states while I was gone. If you haven't started on them yet then I'll go ahead and write the articles. Unless you really want them. Thanks! Hope you had a good holiday. BaileyL 08:49, 30 December 2009 (CST)

Hi Al,

Thanks for the message. I started to work on BP the second week of September and have recently become a full time staff writer. Currently living in Arizona, did my undergraduate studies at Trinity College in Washington DC and did a year of Study in Bonn Germany after that. I studied International politics for my undergraduate degree. I have been working on keeping track of any local elections going on the remainder of this year, but mostly finding measures that will be voted on in 2010. I have been organizing the 2009 local measures recently, currently i am organizing them by political topics. I think what interests me the most in organizing all the local measures is how similar topics are spread out over many states, mostly alcohol measures and tax issues. Hope that information helps, if you need anything else let me know! JohannaH 11:17, 22 December 2009 (CST)


Hey Al, I noticed that you created a year specific page for the recall efforts. I have a few recall articles I'm writing and wanted to know if you want me to add the articles to both the main recall article and the 2009 recall article (to make it easier for you) or should I just paste it in the main one? Thanks! BaileyL 11:23, 22 September 2009 (CDT)

Hi Alejando,

I got your note on my talk page - can you link the two pages that you are talking about please? Thanks, Gardengnome 15:59, 10 July 2009 (CDT)

P.S. A quick way to sign notes like this is to use 4 tildes, like this: ~~~~. You'll usually find the tilde below the ESC key on the upper left of your keyboard, and need to hit shift to get it.

initiated constitutional amendment this coding = initiated constitutional amendment

Ohio Smoking Ban Direct Initiative (2006) is an initiated state statute.

No big deal. I've just seen lots of errors lately with mislabeling. And I'm not saying that you made those errors either.

My newest creations

  • ApprovedaUpheld
  • DefeateddVetoed

I am not taking credit for creating this. I just put it in template form and think it should be used for all veto referendum ballot measures. Veto referendums are oftentimes confusing to readers. A "YES" votes often upholds the measures. This means that the sponsors of veto referendums try for a "NO" vote. I don't think that most people understand that and that is why I created this.--Johnwynnejr 14:03, 27 January 2010 (CST)

New Mexico War Veteran Scholarship, Amendment 1 (2010)

Not sure what's going on with this article, but the content you added says in one place that this is an issue for veterans scholarships, but then in the fiscal impact portion, it says it's a bill requiring the secretary of state to provide voting systems at each polling location. --Bdb484 13:39, 23 September 2010 (CDT)

my edits to donor table

Hi, I am going through the finance reports. and there is ALOT :) take a look and see. I am listing the major donors, however it is impossible to list all the small $250 and $500 donors or it will need a new page just for the donor table. unfortunatly the totals the way they were on the mass ballot questions were way off. Im going to try to finish tonight. feel free to take a look after and see if I missed out on any that are important. Im trying to work from the top down. and stop at a reasonable number. People can still click on the actual reports from the ref to see the hundreds of other donors. let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. thanks -Hitman6999 20:13, 25 October 2010 (CDT)

Hey, I have a quick question about your chart for question 2 in MA. Im going through some of the reports and several of the top ones (that I did not delete) don't seem to exist in the campaign reports. So I want to make sure Im not screwing up here or something. I am pulling my numbers from or the Committee Against Repealing the Housing Law which seems to run the "Campaign to Protect the Affordable Housing Law" as thier is no ballot committee with the "Campaign to Protect the Affordable Housing Law" name. Also alot of these have cents and the state records do not include cents on reciepts. So im wondering if you were pulling these numbers from an article or alternate source that I am missing. Or are thier multiple committees you are pulling the numbers from? Please let me know so I can keep updating this. I don't want to add the wrong info and then have to duplicate my work later so Im going to hold off where Im at for now as it seems to be most of the really big donors. but please double check and make sure my we are pulling our numbers from the same place. thanks -Hitman6999 23:59, 25 October 2010 (CDT)

and also same question for question 1. according to state records the "Committee to Repeal the Alcohol Sales Tax" does not exist legally. Do they even have a website? i can't seem to find one. Can you tell me where those donation numbers came from and the committee name they are linked to on state records? thanks -Hitman6999 00:59, 26 October 2010 (CDT)

ah found it "Vote Yes on One Committee" is the legal name -Hitman6999 01:05, 26 October 2010 (CDT)
