Who can vote?
Only those who are on the staff collective at the time of the election can vote.
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. There will be 24 issues published this term by the day of elections so you must have contributed to at least three.
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 editors is Monday, March 17 at noon. All sets of editorial candidates must submit a position platform (800 word limit) and photograph. These will be published in Issue 23 on Monday, March 24. Those wanting to run as Staff Collective directors on the board can be nominated at the Spring Election meeting.
