Listing individual districts[edit]

I've removed the individual districts since I feel this precedent would add significantly to the size of the template, which is already quite large. I think it would be best to just leave the main article for each state linked here, and have the links for individual district elections inside of the state's election articles. --Tom (talk - email) 15:27, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

There are still some random House races that have their own billing here. Special elections I understand, but TX-22 and VA-07 receiving top-level billing as well? What makes these races more notable than the others? Qqqqqq (talk) 06:54, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Presidential?[edit]

Would it be appropriate and useful to add a section for the 2008 Presidential elections? Maybe basic links to the main article about the election, as well as the articles about the two major party primary processes? Chadlupkes 03:12, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
