Changing the format to the tables[edit]

(Feel free to link/post this anywhere where more people may hear/voice about this)

Anyone else besides me think that the tables in all the gubernatorial election pages (except '06) should be changed to a more standard format, similar to the kind found in the U.S. Senate and House election pages? On the gubernatorial pages, the incumbent party's color is shown on the first three columns and the winning party's color is on the last column. On the Senate and House pages, a non-white color appears across the entire row if the party is changed. Also, if one retires, a grey background appears in just the cell with the retiree's name. (For a good example of this, the2000 Senate Elections page might be a good ref. point) Mr. Matté 00:14, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
