Civi 5.11, WordPress 5.1.1
I work with an organization whose Contacts (of all types) are limited to 4 states in the US. (Available States/Provinces in the localization settings includes only the US.) In order to speed up data entry for my organization's users, I'd like those 4 states to appear at the top of the States dropdown when new Contacts are added. However I don't see this capability in the Option Groups settings, and I don't see an Order field in the civicrm_state_province table.
Are my only ways forward to create a custom State field, or develop a custom hook?
