The Associated Students have approved the time line and are considering revised rules for the 1995 elections.

The time line was approved by ASUA's Central Coordinating Council, the Undergraduate Senate and the Graduate and Professional Student Council at their meetings within the past week. The elections code will be discussed by the CCC Wednesday.

The primary election will be held Feb. 28 and March 1, and the general election will take place March 7 and 8, according to a document from the senate.

Candidate packets will be available Feb. 6 and are due Feb. 13 at 5 p.m.

The following changes to the elections code are being considered:

Reinforcing the candidates' responsibility to verify their academic record.

Raising campaign expense limits from $15 to $30 for various positions.

Alleviating restrictions on campaign advertising by clubs and organizations.

Prohibiting campaigning on Center for Computing and Information Technology and UA servers without elections commission approval.

Implementing fines for violations of the code, which would be deducted from a $50 deposit by each candidate.

The changes are being made mainly to clarify parts of the code that have caused disputes in the past, said Mike Harter, ASUA elections commissioner.
