To people in the Politics workgroup: Is there a need for a general entry on Elections (I suspect so) or do we just need specialized entries on Primaries and General elections? Roger Lohmann 17:17, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

There is definitely a need for an article at election. However, the structure could either be a short article at election with more details at Primary election and General election and possibly Runoff election as well as voting methods, or one where election discussed general elections, primary elections, runoffs, voting methods, etc., with only primary elections, runoffs, and specific votimg methods getting their own articles. Of course, there can always be other methods to do this, but I see those two as the main choices. Anthony Argyriou 00:09, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
