    I don't do them that way. Here is how I do the CrO4^-. You can add the states.
    CrO4^2- ==> Cr^3+

    Cr is +6 on left and +3 on right. Add 3e to left.
    CrO4^2- +3e ==> Cr^3+

    Count the charge on the left (-5) and right (+3); add OH^- to the right to balance the charge.
    CrO4^2- + 3e ==> Cr^3+ + 8OH^-

    Now add H2O to balance.
    CrO4^2- + 4H2O + 3e ==> Cr^3+ + 8OH^-
