If your posters fall down throughout election week, it is your responsibility to take care of them. If I find any poster falling down or on the ground, I will place them in Baker’s room, but will not notify you-it is your responsibility. However, remember that none of your campaign material can be found laying around the school after 2:30pm each day, or it will result in disqualification. There is a chance that if staff or janitors get to the posters first they will discard of the poster, so keep an eye on your posters.
