Candidate information

Each candidate may submit information to the USI Congress website, which we will publish soon after the close of nominations.

Elections Regulations

Elections are regulated by the USI Constitution and further rules are developed and overseen by the Electoral Commission.  Elections are then carried out by the USI Elections Subcommittee of the Steering Committee.

All USI election campaigns are subject to a spending limit of €300.00 per candidate.

The USI Constitution Articles 6.2 and 6.3 establish the current regulations.
