The Elections Committee shall define any rule infringement on the following scale:
||A reminder to a candidate of the elections rules. Will not appear on the warnings list or voting portal.
||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.
||The candidate will not be listed on the voting portal, and will be removed from all election activities.
