    The general outline and collection has been started, but if you would like to expand and organize your state, here's what you do. Right below the page heading for your state insert this: {{subst:Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Work groups/Division banner}} and save. This will put a rough outline together for you (see Virginia) and then you can edit it to conform to your area. A good place to look for requested articles for your area is the Missing articles project for politiciansand look for the pages that have your state and include links to them in your Announcements area.

    This WikiProjectaims to: 1. tie in directly to the Politics Portalto improve accessibility to high quality politics-related articles. The Portal is intended as a front page for Wikipedia's politics coverage, and should aid the reader in navigating around the articles. It should also draw attention to current events and some of Wikipedia's best politics articles. 2. support the Portal by ensuring that the Portal has plenty of high-quality articles to showcase and ensuring that readers starting with the Portal can find their way around easily 3. be as good in breadth as it is in depth. The namespace 'Politics' is rather broad, so although politics coverage can be augmented by more detailed projects, this particular project should oversee allcoverage – this will involve making sure that the articles are well organised (through the use of categories) and ensuring that due attention is paid to the further reaches of the topic - for example, more obscure political theory. For the Portal,...
