good job!![edit]

This is a great page, I'm very encouraged to see that you took an almost identical approach to what I did with the List of Oregon ballot measures.

One thing that rose out of our discussion over there, was the usefulness of pages that can be printed in black-and-white. People discouraged me from coloring entire rows in the tables, and I think they were right. By the way, exactly what does the blue coloring indicate here?

Also, I think that some prose describing each election cycle (as I've done for 2004 and 2006, so far, in Oregon) is worthwhile. Might be better in a separate article, I don't know.

Anyway, keep up the good work! I'll check back to see if you have any more good ideas I can steal. I might grab those "checkmark" images off here, I like those.

The article over at List of Oregon ballot measures is in fact where I took the inspiration for this article. I looked at some of the other ones, such as the one set up for California but found the Oregon article to be superior. Good job over there.
I did not carry over all of your columns, for example the one regarding constitutional amendments, due to the fact this is implicit in Arizona's ballot measure numbering method. Any measure numbered 1XX is for a constitutional amendment. The shading is to indicate citizen initiatives as opposed to legislative referrals. This is implicit in the 2XX measures, which are by definition citizen initiatives, but the origin of 1XX and 3XX measures is otherwise ambiguous. I'm still not sure whether I prefer the row shading method to denote this or if the addition of another column would be beneficial. The concerns about the black/white printing are valid though, and if the shading method is kept perhaps a lighter shade could be used.
Feel free to snag the checkmark things, I incorporated those after seeing them on some other yes/no lists. Some people have argued that the red=no, green=yes coloration is inherently POV, but I think it's fine as that is a fairly universally accepted convention. Arkyan 17:59, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
