Virtual Election Code
- Examples of the campaign materials must be submitted to the Office of Student Life staff and approved before it can be displayed via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Digital platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are permitted
- Facebook groups are permitted as part of the campaign. However, the wall MUST BE DISABLED so that people cannot leave comments

- Candidates can record and post videos to social media to share with the student body. Candidates are not allowed to go live on any platforms. Senate candidates’ videos can be a maximum of 30 seconds, and executive candidates’ videos can be one minute.
- During elections, NO NEW campaign materials can be posted online. Candidates and their friends CANNOT place Facebook statuses or tweets that ask students to vote for them. They can only say “Don’t forget to vote in the SGA election”
- Where possible, candidates should disable comments on any social media post, group or event.
- If you are in doubt whether something is allowed, ask before you do it. It’s better to be safe than to find yourself disqualified
- Campaign materials are to be removed by the candidate/supporters within 24 hours of the conclusion of the election.
- A violation of any of the election rules or student code by conduct by any candidate may lead to disqualification
- The disqualification of a candidate will be determined by the elections committee
