  1. DATES: This Contest ("Contest") begins October 27, 2014 at Noon EDT and ends November 3, 2014 at 11:59PM EST ("Contest Period").
  2. SPONSOR. Electoral Ventures, LLC, is the promoter and sponsor of the Contest ("Sponsor"). All references in these Official Rules to Sponsor includes its affiliates, parents, subsidiaries, and marketing or advertising agencies, and their respective directors, managers, officers, employees, representatives, and agents.
  3. ADMINISTRATOR. A person appointed by Sponsor will serve as the administrator ("Administrator") of the Contest and will be responsible overseeing the administration of the Contest, for resolving any disputes that arise regarding violations or interpretation of the Official Rules, and any other issues that might arise.
  4. ELIGIBILITY: Failure of an entrant to meet all eligibility requirements will result in disqualification of the entrant and forfeiture of his or her prize. This Contest is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and Washington, DC. Entrants must be age 18 or older as of the date of the entrant's entry. Employees and their immediate families, including household members of Administrator and Sponsor are ineligible. Such excluded employees and/or family members may participate, but will not be eligible to receive any prizes.

    Each entrant must have Internet access and a web browser. Each entrant must provide their name, Zip Code and a valid email address. Each entrant must be the Authorized Account Holder of the email account used in the registration process. In the event of a dispute as to the identity based on an email address submitted, the entry will be declared made by the Authorized Account Holder of the email address submitted at the time of entry. "Authorized Account Holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.

    Any entry that is incomplete, late, or does not include a valid email address owned by entrant, as the Authorized User, will be disqualified.

    Each entrant is limited to use of a single email account, and may make one (1) online entry per day. Subsequent daily entries determined to be from the same email address or multiple entries from the same entrant using different email addresses will be invalid.

  5. HOW TO ENTER: To enter the Contest, visit the entry page Period and select a winner for each displayed Senate race by choosing one of the candidates in that race. You must choose a winner for each race to submit your entry. Complete the requested contact information and select the Enter button. Automated entries (including, but not limited to entries submitted using any robot, script, macro, or other automated service) are void. Incomplete entries are void. Proof of submission will not be deemed proof of entry. Only eligible entries received electronically during the Contest Period will be included in the prize drawing.
  6. SCORING: Each entry will earn one point for each Senate election where the entrant's prediction matches the actual winner of that state's Senate election. In the event of a runoff election in a given state, the winner of that runoff will be used to determine the awarding of that state's point. Once a winner is established, that state's point is awarded. Subsequent events (e.g., the winner is unable to assume office) will not change the result. Should a candidate other than those listed win the election in a given state, all entrants will receive one point for that election.
  7. PRIZES AND DETERMINATION OF WINNING ENTRANTS: The winning entrants will be the entrants who best use their knowledge of the 2014 Senate election within the confines of the contest rules. Five $100 Amazon.com™ gift cards will be awarded to winning entrants. The winning entrants will be chosen at random from all those entries with the highest number of correct predictions. Should there be fewer than five winners among eligible entries with the highest score, the remaining winning entrants will be chosen at random from all those entries with the next highest number of correct predictions. All random drawings will be supervised by the Administrator, whose decisions on all matters with respect to this Contest are final. An entrant can only win once. If an entrant wins a prize, all other entries submitted by that entrant will be excluded from the pool of entries with respect to the award of subsequent prizes. If for any reason a winning entrant forfeits his or her prize or is disqualified, an alternate winning entrant will be selected by application of the criteria set forth above, which excludes all entries submitted by the forfeiting entrant.
  8. NOTIFICATION: NOTIFICATION: The Administrator will make reasonable efforts to contact winning entrant for a period of 7 days from the first attempt. Winning entrants will be notified by email as soon as reasonably possible following completion of the scoring process. The return of any prize notification as undeliverable will result in disqualification and forfeiture of all prizes and an alternate entrant will be selected. If for any reason an entrant cannot be contacted by email within 7 days of the initial attempt that entrant will be disqualified, will forfeit his or her prize, and an alternate entrant will be awarded the prize. Entrants may wish to add 270toWin.com to their email program's list of "approved" or "safe" senders.
