The Joint Elections Committee established a “swear jar” at its meeting on Saturday, according to a JEC news release.
Election officials and candidates who swear in Marvin Center 411, the JEC office, will need to pay between 25 cents and $1 dollar, depending on the obscenity.
“THIS IS SUCH F****ING BULL***T!” said JEC Chair Ben Balter in the news release.
He added later in the meeting, “We’ve been running a pretty tight ship all semester. That doesn’t mean we need to start talking like sailors.”
The measure for the “swear jar” passed unanimously.
