METHOD OF ELECTION:

Each candidate will be required to attend an informational meeting on September 21st at
7:30 pm in the Escondido Theater in the SUB. Photographs will be taken at this
meeting, so dress appropriately. All candidates must submit a resume with their
application. The resume committee will narrow the applications to twenty (20) (ten
Queen and ten King) candidates. These twenty (20) candidate names will be announced
at the end of the Candidate Showcase. All twenty (20) candidates will participate in a
campus-wide election beginning on Wednesday, October 4, 2006 and ending on
Thursday, October 5, 2006. Finalists will sign up for an interview, which will take place
on Wednesday, October 4, 2006 from 3:00p.m.-7:00p.m. in the West Hall Conference
Room. The Homecoming Court will be presented at the Rowdy Raider Rally, which

announced at halftime during the football game on Saturday, October 7, 2006. The
Homecoming Court will also ride in the parade on the morning of Saturday, October 7,
2006.



The Homecoming King/Queen and the court will be selected by the following:

(P*50%) + ((I*C)*50%) = S

P=Popular Vote I=Interview Score C=Conversion Factor S=Total Score



50% of the interview score is combined with 50% of the popular vote from the campus-
wide election. The students receiving the highest combined score will be selected as King
and Queen. The remaining individuals with the four highest combined scores will serve
on the Homecoming Court. In case of a tie, the candidate with the highest popular vote
will be selected as Homecoming King and Queen.
