Just thinking - it would ne nice to have some sort of certificates in various disciplines that would indicate a certain level of completion/competence in that area of learning. i realize that Wikiversity is NOT a degree-granting body but it would be interesting to gain some competency in the school/subjects contained on this site. --Imperoo1

Finding one's political jurisdictionsEdit
How can someone find the political entities that have jurisdiction over a particular geographic coordinate?
I'm creating a template that could eventually grow to include one article for each state or other major jurisdiction like the District of Columbia in the United States to discuss the state-level activity associated with net neutrality.
It would be useful in that regard to have an article that could help people identify where and how to register to vote and who their elected representatives and candidates in an election year for governor, attorney general and their representatives in their state legislature. For other purposes, it would help to have a central place in Wikiversity that anyone any place in the world could visit to find the school, school district and boards, municipalities, counties, states, and equivalent.
For example, in Johnson County, Kansas, jocoelection.org gives its own address (2101 East Kansas City Road, Olathe, Kansas 66061) and phone [(913) 715-6800] in the upper right. One can contact them to get information about who is eligible to vote and how to register. Clicking "Voter information" > "Voter lookup" there invites a registered voter to enter "First Name", "Last Name", and "DOB (mm/dd/yyyy)", then click "Look me up". When I have done that, it told me which district I was in for the US House of Representatives, Kansas House and Senate, and similar district information for county, municipality, school boards and water district. And how can I find this information for a particular set of geographic coordinates if I'm not a registered voter there?
Does something like this already exist? If yes, how can I find it? If no, where would you suggest this might optimally be located? I found U. S. Government/Voting Registration and Participation, which suggests that this or another article under U. S. Government might be a good home for this kind of thing for the US. I also found a Category:Government, which might seem to be appropriate for a more general discussion of this.
