Elections Planning and Advisory Committee

2014 General Election


The Elections Planning and Advisory Committee is a student-run committee formed at the start of each Winter Term to oversee the campus-wide general election process for Spring Term. The EPAC believes and supports the philosophy that an open, fair, and well-organized election process plays an essential part in strengthening our community and student governance at Dartmouth College. The EPAC strives to administer each election with the Principle of Community and this philosophy in mind. Each year the EPAC is responsible for ensuring a fair election by justly enforcing the provisions set forth in the General Election Guidelines, setting a specific timeline for all official election events, publicizing the election and the process for becoming a candidate to all Dartmouth students, informing candidates of the election rules and guidelines during mandatory information sessions, ruling on all campaign-related matters (including alleged campaign violations and clarifications to the General Election Guidelines), and verifying/publicizing the results of the campus-wide election.
