“The world might not be fair, but Congress is.” – Yisen Wang,  ex-Coordinator of Communications (2017-2018).

Here at the Marianopolis Student Union, we value fair and equal opportunity for all candidates wishing to run for a position in Congress. In order to ensure a safe and respectful electoral season, Congress has created a set of Electoral Regulations that all candidates are required to read and adhere to. What you’re allowed to do, what you’re not allowed to do, everything is written on this document.

And hey, if it isn’t, you can always ask any of us. We’ll be glad to help.

Make sure you’re up to date with the latest rules and regulations in this handy Winter 2018 Election Guide! For any additional questions, contact our Vice President of Administrative Affairs, Meghan Couture, on Facebook or via MIO.

What? You mean I can’t just run for an elected position without telling anyone?

That’s right. Under our Constitution, all candidates wishing to run for an elected position must collect at least 50 signatures on their nomination forms. This is to ensure that the election process will not be hindered by an oversupply of “last-minute” candidates. The nomination form also doubles as a way to tell everyone “Hey, I’m running for Congress!” We get quality candidates, and you get free publicity. Everyone wins.

Still confused? Consult the handy “How to Elections” guide. You can also reach out to the Chief Electoral Officer and Vice President Meghan Couture through Facebook or via Omnivox. Don’t be scared to slide into her DM’s or MIO’s!

How To Elections
