Welcome to WikiProject United States governors on the English Wikipedia! We are a group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to US Governor History.


  • To provide guidelines and recommendations for articles that discuss all the Governors in US History .
  • To improve Wikipedia's coverage of ALL US Governors by creating, expanding, and maintaining such articles.
  • To serve as the central point of discussion of all US Governors in Wikipedia and to help the US .


The project generally considers any article related to the Governors of the US, to be a valid topic. We will have pages for every governor in US History. Adding information about governors that already have their own pages, and continue to make new articles. Here is a scope of what we plan to do:

  • Discuus what they pursued as governor.
  • Talk About how the state did under the governor
  • The Governors Policies
  • Party Affiliation, (especially during the old days)


Internally, the project has developed several structural features to help in managing its extensive work:

  • Coordinators, who are responsible for maintaining the administrative aspects of the project.
  • Task forces, which are more informal groups for collaboration on specific areas of US Governor history, such as particular periods of the Governors time in office.
