Daily D Favors Free Speech

The Daily Dartmouth‘s editorial board today decried the Student Assembly’s electoral regulations that restrict the electioneering not only of candidates but of their supporters.

In particular, the suspension of the campaign privileges of Paul Heintz ’06 and Brian Martin ’06 at a crucial moment in the election highlights problems with the overall feasibility of election regulation.

Speech needs less regulation, not more; restricting it does not make elections “fairer” by any stretch of the imagination.
