How can I do something like
 $("#CreateDate" || "AuthorizedDate").datepicker({....
so can merge the below two
<script type="text/javascript">
sections into one ?
 <div class="editor-label">
            @Html.LabelFor(model => model.AuthorizedBy)
        <div class="editor-field">
            @Html.EditorFor(model => model.AuthorizedBy)
            @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.AuthorizedBy)

@section Scripts {

       <script type="text/javascript">
           $(document).ready(function () {
                   changeMonth: true,
                   changeYear: true

           <script type="text/javascript">
               $(document).ready(function () {
                       changeMonth: true,
                       changeYear: true
