Relevant portions of the ELECTION RULES are summarized below. The complete rules may be obtained from Barbara Gabriel at the PSC office, or viewed here on the PSC website. 

Eligibility for Holding Office: Members shall be permitted to hold chapter-level office who have been members in good standing of the appropriate chapter for at least one (1) year prior to the close of  nominations, March 8, 2010. 

Voting Eligibility: Members shall be permitted to participate in the nomination process and to vote who have been members in good standing of the appropriate chapter for at least four (4) months prior to the mailing of the ballots on April 5, 2010 (i.e., they must have been a member as of December 4, 2009). 

Nominating Procedures: Nominations of an individual or of a slate must be by official nominating petition signed by no fewer than twenty-five (25) members of the chapter in good standing, or by no fewer than twenty-five percent (25%) of the members of the chapter in good standing,  whichever is less. For all candidates, petitions shall include: (a) the printed name, signature, department and college of each petitioner; and (b) the printed name, signature, department and college of the nominee, as well as the office being sought by the nominee. For chapter elections, members may only sign nominating petitions of the chapter to which they belong. A candidate’s signature on a slate petition shall constitute that candidate’s acceptance of the slate designation. 

Slate Regulations: A slate of candidates will be recognized if it consists of candidates for twenty-five percent (25%) or more of the officers to be elected, and if it submits, prior to the close of nominations: (a) a listing of caucus officers, including the person designated to authorize nominees for that slate; and (b) the names of the members of the caucus’s Committee on Vacancies, which, unless otherwise designated, shall be the caucus nominating committee authorized to replace any candidate on the slate whose name is withdrawn no later than seven days prior to the mailing of the ballots. 

Balloting: All voting must be on the official PSC ballot. Write-in votes are permitted. A write-in vote shall be valid if the intent of the voter is clear; written, printed and typed names are acceptable. A write-in candidate must meet the same eligibility requirements as a regular candidate. In chapter elections, any nominated or write-in candidate must receive at least ten votes or ten percent of the votes cast for that office, whichever is less, in order to be elected. Write-in candidates who are elected must submit written acceptance of office to the Elections Committee within ten calendar days of notification that their election has been certified. 

Campaigning: Declared candidates may mail literature at their own expense, either directly or through the PSC mailing house (Century Direct, 30-00 47th Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101). At the request of the candidate and at cost, the PSC will provide Century Direct with home-addressed electronic download of the membership, or will provide candidates with college-addressed list, labels and/or electronic download of the membership. Candidates must notify the PSC five business days in advance of the mailing to allow sufficient time for the ordering of labels. Please see Barbara Gabriel at the PSC for further information, and to file the required forms. 

Election Tally: Each candidate, or a representative of the candidate, is entitled to be present at the counting of the ballots.
