2. The pledge is specifically for candidates; however ...
I'd like to add to the site information about election challenges that can be initiated by other than candidates, including voter-initiated challenges and challenges regarding propositions/ballot measures/levies (they're called different things in different states, you're using the California term). If you (or anyone reading this) would like to volunteer to do the background research for this, it could be added to the site.

There's one example I know of where the results of a medical marijuana proposition in Alameda County, California was challenged and eventually a judge ruled that there had to be a re-vote.

The Standing For Voters pledge itself isn't exactly appropriate to use for ballot measures because there's no one person to sign the pledge. Got ideas about how to tackle that?
