John Haberstroh and Jonathon Bolin, two candidates who are running for executive positions in Associated Students Inc., have been petitioned against for violating the election handbook by passing out campaign leaflets in the dorms. 

According to ASI Government Elections Officer Leo Palomera, Haberstroh, who is running for president, and Bolin, who is running for vice president, are accused of sliding leaflets under residents’ doors. 

According to the 2011 Elections Handbook, candidates cannot participate in door-to-door soliciting, distribute fliers under the door or solicit by knocking. 

Bolin said two of their campaign workers, who live in the dorms, told him that they had passed out leaflets to just their friends in the dorms. 

A hearing with the Board of Elections will be held today at 7:15 p.m.

Bolin said he and Haberstroh will plead guilty at the meeting. The Board of Elections will then decide what consequences Haberstroh and Bolin will face, Palomera said.

“It’s a relatively minor offense,” Palomera said.
If the person who filed the petition does not appear at the hearing Monday, the case will be dismissed.
