Severity Description
Informal warning A reminder to a candidate of the elections rules. Will not appear on the warnings list or voting portal.
Formal warning Will not appear on the voting portal, but the Elections Committee is persuaded that a rule breach might have occured.
Mild rule breach Candidate may not have intended to break a rule, but the infringement is severe enough to go on the voting portal. Rule breach does not directly impact another candidate.
Moderate rule breach Candidate did have some knowledge that they were breaking a rule. The Elections Committee may be satisfied that repetition is unlikely. Rule breach does not significantly impact another candidate.
Severe rule breach Candidate may have been dishonest to the election committee, or have intended to break a rule with an element of deception. Rule breach represents serious risk to the fairness of the elections, or may have badly impacted another candidate's campaign.
Very severe rule breach Candidate has committed a rule infringement which is just short of disqualification.
Disqualification The candidate will not be listed on the voting portal, and will be removed from all election activities.
