In an effort to promote “creative campaigning,” the Student Assembly has loosened several election rules, allowing candidates and student organizations to show public support for candidates running for certain positions, according to Alfonse Muglia ’14, director of elections for the S.A.

Previously, election guidelines prevented candidates from talking about other candidates. Now, all candidates are open to discuss the presidential and executive vice presidential races and publicly support candidates for both positions, Muglia said.
