Which US State Governors Use WordPress?
In normal times, being a governor of a US state is a fairly low-profile job.
Yes, there are some famous governors. For example, you probably remember Governor Schwarzenegger.
However, there are 50 different governors, plus five more if you include territories such as Guam and Puerto Rico. Most governors struggle to become famous in their own state, let alone nationally or internationally.
These are not normal times. Governors are now constantly in the news and being required to really lead their states. As the CEO of a company with staff across the USA, I've been visiting a lot of governors' websites, looking for information. I realized that many are using WordPress!
All-in-all, 12 governors are using WordPress. During the pandemic, these governors need to provide daily or even hourly updates to their citizens, using text, video, files and more. It's hard to imagine a better choice than WordPress for busy government sites in 2020.

WordPress and government websites
WordPress runs about 35% of the web, and about 25% of the state governors' websites.
If you're interested in digging deeper, there's a theme specifically designed for government sites called GovPress. You can also find a list of many government websites using PublishPress, including the Department of State, the City of Philadelphia and the State of Washington.
