|Subject: Thursday, 16 October, 2008: Guidelines for Elections, 6 November, 2008|
Posted Oct 16, 2008 by The H2G2 Editors
|It has been confirmed that the Glenrothes By-Election will take place on Thursday, 6 November, 2008. The standard election guidelines are now in force.|
In order to enable balanced and interesting debates, messageboards and discussion forums across the BBC will be operating under the BBC's agreed policies. This means there will be additional guidelines for members to abide by if they intend to discuss election issues.
In addition to the existing House Rules you must:
Declare if you are a candidate
Discuss the issues, not the personalities
From time to time during the campaign it may be necessary to restrict or close certain discussions. More information on the BBC's guidelines during local elections can be found in the BBC Editorial Guidelines.
If you wish to discuss the election guidelines with other Researchers, please use the 2008 Elections Forum. More information on the by-election can be found on the BBC News Website.
