RULES FOR CAMPAIGNING
I’m so sorry, this is long.. but ya’ll gotta do what ya gotta dooo /:
Candidates are NOT allowed to start campaigning until Saturday, August 31st at 12PM. Any posters/campaigning seen before that time may result in disqualification.
Candidates are allowed to post flyers and posters in the 1st-floor lobby area and the common areas on each floor. Flyers and Paper can not exceed a normal A4 paper size of 8.5in x 11in unless told otherwise.
Candidates can go door to door to speak with residents about the election and their candidacy but must do so with an RA.
Candidates may hand out flyers, or promote with buttons, but nothing can be slipped under residents’ doors.
If you need butcher paper and/or markers to campaign please ask your RA to take you to the CV2 CRL (the housing resource room) so that you can create your posters. If you cannot get a hold of your RA please let the RHA Executive Board know and they will try their best to take you to the CV2 Center for Residential Leadership (CRL).
Anything that will be hung up on the walls of the residential building must be hung up by blue painters tape.
No chalking is allowed on the sidewalk outside.
Bribery of any kind is not allowed and can be grounds for disqualification. Check with your respective Hall Government Advisor if you have any further questions.
All candidates will be responsible for removing their signage after the final Election Day.
All postings MUST BE APPROPRIATE in language and content – if a poster is found to be inappropriate, you will be contacted by your Hall Government advisor and the posters must be taken down.
Any and all campaigning materials must be sent to Alex Fozo at firstname.lastname@example.org to verify they are appropriate and allowed to be displayed.
FAILURE TO ABIDE BY THE RULES MAY RESULT IN AUTOMATIC DISQUALIFICATION
