About election labels on Twitter

Election labels contain additional information about Twitter accounts for specified political candidates. The label appears on the profile page of the candidate’s Twitter account and on the Tweets sent and Retweeted by the candidate’s account. Labels contain information about the office the candidate is running for, the state the office is located in, and (when applicable) the district number.

Additionally, these labels include a small icon of a ballot box  to signal the account’s status as a candidate running for government office.

  • Are a major party nominee for Governor, or for the US Senate, or US House of Representatives.
