At 4.55pm yesterday, it was the (relative) quiet before the storm. Across candidates people stood quitely in front of noticeboards, trying to claim their space. At 5pm, Elections Group let it be known that the time had come, and bam! all hell broke loose on campus. Within what felt like seconds there was no space left on a single noticeboard across campus The elections publicity drive has begun. Lecture and Kitchen tours have also already started, and will be continuing through to the end week 5 as candidates jostle for your votes.
I think we secured some fairly good noticeboard space for my candidate, Mike Britland, who is running for FIA.
As I said yesterday, I'm fairly pleased with how our posters turned out. Here is the first of them, keep your eye out for them in a Union near you.
