Oct. 23-25 survey of candidates

Some of us are systematically going through the state portals and updating the lists of candidates. The tasks are:

  1. Check all new additions of candidates by citizen editors (both the simple red links and new pages for candidates that have been created) against the 2008RaceTracker wiki to make sure they are confirmed candidates.
    • For confirmed candidates, create a new candidate page from the standard template.
    • For those who are not, note them below in the list of states - we'll deal with these individually.
  2. For all confirmed candidates, locate and upload a photo, making sure that the photo shows up both in the list of candidates and in the candidate profile pages.
  3. For all confirmed candidates, add a link to the 2008RaceTracker wiki to the Congresspedia profiles.
  4. For all candidates that have dropped out, make sure to note this on their candidate profile page and on the list of candidates.

Please note your name by the state you are working on (note "in progress") or have finished. Also make sure to note any unconfirmed candidates that have been added by citizen editors.
