Start & End dates missing for memberships


#1

I just crawled across all 50 states (so, not DC or PR) and found the startDate and endDate blank in all currentMemberships and oldMemberships for every legislator.

Is this a bug or a feature?

(I did not look at the startDate or endDate on any PostNode, but I do not believe it to be very different.)

We haven’t added them yet, but it is in the plan: https://github.com/openstates/people/issues/11

I’m hoping we’ll get a bunch of them when we do the incoming 2019 legislators
