Time and Place
The election will take place at 7pm on Wednesday, April 6, 2016 in the Lecture Hall of Sadleir House (room 106 – wheelchair accessible). Food will be provided.
The official Agenda is as follows. The editors serve as chair of the meeting:
- Editor(s) Remarks
- Presentations of candidates for editor(s) platforms (10 minute limit per set of candidates)
- Question Period
- Election of Editor(s)
- Election of three Board directors by the Staff Collective
Question Period rules
Each staff collective member is entitled to ask questions to the candidates regarding any aspect of the newspaper. These questions must be directed at, and will be answered by, all four candidates. Furthermore, questions must refrain from attacking any candidates. The night is one of civil discourse and respect.
Each set of candidates will have up to two minutes to answer each question. This is absolutely not a debate format, though inevitably candidates will disagree, and are free to voice that disagreement.
Who can vote
Only those who are on the staff collective at the time of the election can vote (the list is below).
Who’s on the Staff Collective?
You are considered part of the staff collective if you have contributed to the production of at least 15% of the issues of Arthur released before the election. For our purposes that means you must have contributed to at least three. (Again, see below.)
What if my name isn’t below?
Then you can’t vote. That said, we might have made a mistake. In that case, bring a list detailing your contributions to the Volume. We’ll double check your list, and if you’re right you get a vote. If you happen to have copies of the issues you can just bring those along.
In accordance with section 6e of the Arthur bylaws, staff collective members may participate in the election through means of proxy vote. They may appoint, in writing, a proxy holder to vote for them in the election. The proxy holder does not need to be a member of the staff collective.
Proxies must bring:
- The signature of the Staff Collective member
- The date the proxy is signed
- Who the proxy is giving the voting powers to and from
- Who the Staff Collective member is voting for (or the Staff Collective member can allow the proxy holder to choose who to vote for).
Who can run for editor?
Candidates for the position of editor(s) must be members of the Staff Collective at the time of the election. Two Staff Collective members may choose to run as co-editors. They must have been running together to fill the positions of co-editors together.
Who can run for the Board?
Anyone who is a member of the Staff Collective at the time of the election.
The deadline for nominations for editorial candidates has passed.
Those wanting to run as Staff Collective directors on the board can be nominated at the Spring Election meeting.
