Elections : How they work.

Quote :
House Election

During the House election, the entire party is responsible for chipping in to the campaign with the following material.

Media

- Newspaper Ad
- Radio Ad
- Television Ad

Ads : These are straightforward. They are television or radio ads. Radio ads cost $5,000 per state, TV ads cost $15,000 per state. You must designate what states they run in. With television ads, you should include pictures or describe them. They should be clever or funny. Negative ads will yield turnout lowering results, positive ads will do the opposite. Choose wisely. Radio ads should be concise and wit/humor adds a lot.

More specific costs will be provided come election time.

Grassroots

- Buttons (images)
- Billboards (Images or text)
- Lawn Signs (Images)
- Bumper Stickers (Images)
- Pamphlets: These SHOULD be images, but they DO NOT have to be. They should be fairly simple, but still include more information than a poster. Clear and to the point is the key here.
- Posters: These HAVE to be images. Pretty straightforward. You're looking for simple but effective.

Appearances

Representatives should make appearances around their home district during an election. If they are a high profile Representative like the Speaker or Party Leader, they may want to go to other states or targeted seats. No more than 3 speeches a day.

- Soap-Box Speech
- Planned Event
- Rally
- Door-to-Door

Presidential Election

Presidential elections are 5 RL days long. Each day the candidate will submit 6 events. Each event should be 200-400 words and should be targeted towards Democrats, Independents or Republicans. Within one day, a candidate will be penalized if he travels more than a two state radius from the state he started in. This is known as a "fatigue penalty." Fatigue rules do not apply from day to day, meaning if on day one you ended in Minnesota, you could start in Louisiana the next day.

Presidential candidates may do grassroots campaigning. There is no required amount and a limit of 5 grassroots materials per day. They are the same as above:

- Buttons (images)
- Billboards (Images or text)
- Lawn Signs (Images)
- Bumper Stickers (Images)
- Pamphlets: These SHOULD be images, but they DO NOT have to be. They should be fairly simple, but still include more information than a poster. Clear and to the point is the key here.
- Posters: These HAVE to be images. Pretty straightforward. You're looking for simple but effective.

Presidential candidates may also do ads, as per the rules above. There is not minimum or limit to the amount of ads you do other than your own budget.
