Last weekend I attended the SamSphere Chicago blogger conference that was hosted by the Sam Adams Alliance. One of the most interesting things I picked up on was the Ballotpedia website that is a ballot initiative specific wiki that is much like Wikipedia. And with all the ballot issues that South Dakota voters will be dealing with in 2008, I think that link can become a very valuable resource for bloggers and media who want to cover the various ballot issues in the months to come. There is also a web page dedicated to the laws that govern South Dakota initiative process and also a page that covers some of South Dakota history in regard to initiatives and another page with the 2006 South Dakota initiatives.
I have put a Ballotpedia links section on my sidebar, so check it out. And note that all are welcome to help edit, add, and correct the information, plus there is a discussion section for those who want to argue points.
And a note to the legal eagles, there is also a Judgepedia that is intended to provide information of judges who are up for election and also coverage on court rulings.
