"To help you make a decision, I have found five possible locations for you to consider.The specific information on these locations can be found xxx website.

  • List item
  • List item
  • List item
  • List item
  • List item"

I think I have to use a colon before the first bullet point, but it seems like that I can't in this example. Can someone provide some help on how to fix this example. Thanks very much!

  • In very formal writing, bullet points would not be used. Constitutions, certain legal documents, treaties, etc. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Oct 30 '17 at 20:09
