Whereas:              the AS Elections Code currently requires that all candidates for an AS elected office pay a performance bond when filing for candidacy and that some students have chosen not to run for office due to the performance bond requirement.

Be it enacted by the Associated Students Council that the following revisions be made to the Associated Students Elections Code.

Section 7           General Elections – Filing for Candidacy

7.02               At the time nomination materials are filed, the Candidate shall also file a signed statement indicating candidate’s understanding of the Constitution, Elections Code and other election materials of the Associated Students of Humboldt State University.  Candidate shall also file a performance bond as described in Section 8 General Elections Performance Bond.

Section 8           General Elections – Performance Bond

8.01               Prior to each General Election, the Elections Commission will establish a performance bond of fifteen ($15) for each A.S. Council, All University, Graduate, A.S. President and Vice President candidates.  This bond must be paid at the A.S. Business Office at the time of filing.
