Social media policy with regard to elections

The CCDC web site posts information supplied by all countywide, statewide and national Democratic candidates expected to be on the ballot, including office sought, name of candidate, bio of about 125 words, headshot photo, and links to candidates’ web sites, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. (For municipal and school board candidates, please refer to the relevant zones.)

We will indicate which candidates are incumbents and also, when applicable, CCDC and PA Dem endorsements. Candidates endorsed by CCDC will be listed first under the office sought, but non-endorsed candidates will still be listed with their relevant info.

This site will also post a fair and reasonable number of candidates’ press releases and articles about them in the press. Endorsed candidates will receive extra space, but non-endorsed candidates will also have a presence. Such posts will indicate whether there are other Dem primary candidates for that office and if so will link to the Candidates page for more info.

The CCDC calendar will post relevant election-related events (including purpose, place, date and time) furnished by candidates and zones, whether or not the candidate is endorsed.

Primary winners become CCDC’s endorsed candidates in the general election and the only candidates to remain on the Candidates page. These are the only candidates authorized to use the CCDC logo and photos of CCDC headquarters.

Social media posting for presidential candidates may depend on the number of candidates and proximity to non-presidential elections, except that their Chesco events will be included on the calendar at any time.
