(1) The description of the bargaining unit or voting group(s) in which the election is to be conducted.
(2) The deadline for return of mail ballots or the date(s), hours and polling place(s) for an on-site election.
(3) The cut-off date, if any, or other criteria to be applied in establishing eligibility to vote in the election, including that the eligible employees are limited to those who continue to be employed within the bargaining unit when they cast a ballot in an on-site election or at the deadline for return of mail ballots.
(4) A statement of the purpose of the election and the question to be voted upon or a sample ballot.
