We also include tables for the article. Usually we only use one. This is for the presidential history used at the start of the election history on each page. You can either make it yourself or you can use the one on en wiki. But you must attribute.

Writing the information[change | change source]

When you write the paragraph for the article remember to include:

  • The current representative and the political party
  • Counties and major cities if you can
  • Optional:When the district was founded, if the district flipped recently, major events, famous past representatives.

Remember to look at already made congressional districts for help!

If you chose to copy paste info boxes, tables , and other templates from the en wiki you must attribute. You do this by using the Template:Translated page. This is the code: {{translated page|en|New York's 11th congressional district|version=1000042083}}

You can get the version= by going to the en wiki article of the page and hitting "view history". Then click compare and after that loads copy and paste the numbers seen after oldid= in the url and past them back into the template. These will go on the talk page of the article once you finish.
