The Election Questions are as follows:

Each argument filed shall not exceed 300 words and must contain the sworn statement of each person sponsoring it; if the argument is submitted by an organization, it shall contain the sworn statement of two executive officers of the organization or if submitted by a political committee it shall contain the sworn statement of the committee’s chairman or treasurer. If the argument is submitted by an individual and not on behalf of an organization, a political committee or any other group, the person shall submit the argument with a sworn, notarized statement.
