When using magical chalk, it's important not to chalk on campus property. Remember: Vandalism of city property is not a crime.

Anyway, I've been in contact with a few folks about where campus property is, and it seems to be the consensus among university folks that there is no "50% rule" which generally allows folks to chalk on the outer half of sidewalks adjacent to campus. The property line is apparently at different locations in different places. Also, keep in mind that regardless of where that property line is, the whole sidewalk is still cleaned by campus staff.

Hmmm, that's interesting.
I still think your comment to me about who collects the parking meters makes sense though.

Those are city parking meters, so that half being city controlled makes sense.

Still, I think chalking is pretty worthless overall and basically only exists so that one group can outdo the other by chalking earlier and earlier. I don't think it'd hurt the election at all if it completely disappeared.
The campus isn't entirely surrounded by parking meters, though. That was what they were trying to get across to me: There isn't one single rule that applies everywhere.
I found chalking a very useful tool if combined with a memorable slogan (either alliterative or rhyming).

I still remember last year's "Vote Vivienne" and "Jen for Sen".
