The Joint Elections Committee charged two candidates with campaign  violations Saturday – the first violations the body has doled out during the election season.

Ross Rattanasena, who secured one of three Elliott School of International Affairs senate seats, is charged will hanging too many posters on a building. Senate candidates can only post 10 posters.

Justin Pennish, who unsuccessfully bid for the U-At-Large seat, is also charged with exceeding the poster limit. He is also charged with the failure to get his materials approved by the JEC.

Candidates found guilty of six or more violations will be removed from the ballot.

The violation hearings for both candidates will be held on Feb. 27.
