46-57: An Act to Require only Major Contributors to a Presidential Campaign Be Held Accountable to the Presidential Slate

Purpose: To reduce the disparity between levels of contributions of campaign workers as described in Bylaw 5.20(E)(1), thereby creating a brightline between major contributions and negligible contributions.

Whereas, the current bylaw on campaign workers, found under 5.20(E)(1), mandates that all people actively campaigning or distributing materials for a slate must be listed on Election Form 9, and,

Whereas, slates often use a plethora of workers to help them on their campaigns, and,

Whereas, the help of campaign workers can vary from minor contributions to major contributions, and,

Whereas, completing an exhaustive list of all campaign workers can become superfluous and unnecessary, and

Therefore, be it resolved that Bylaw 5.20(E)(1) shall now read:

(1) All people actively campaigning or making substantial, non-financial contributions for a slate of candidates that has fulfilled the requirements of Section 5.10(B) shall be submitted to the BEC in a manner to be set-forth by the BEC
