Campaign Diary: Day 8 ?

Online Manifestos

Pretty much all of the candidates manifestos are online now, so you can browse through them all and make an informed choice when it comes to be time to vote (from next wednesday). There are some excellent ideas out there and even if you don't care who wins its worth having a read of them to see the kind of things students like yourselves think could be improved about the union.

As to myself, campaigning officially starts today and I've heard that a few candidates were up bright and early doing some preliminary lecture tours. I'm personally saving my lecture tours for next week closer to the time in question, but I have been preparing printed publicity for the 5pm end of the publicty embargo when candidates are let loose to put up posters across campus. Though of course the university does not strictly approve of us postering everywhere.

Was up into the small hours last night trying to construct some convincing flyers and working on tweaking the manifesto. Lots of caffine will be needed this week I think.

Stay awesome everyone.

    The funniest bit is the fact that there's 3 people behind me postering… In a room with Computers in! Booo…

    I managed to put a few in the DCS common room and in the Maths lobby

  6. I will try to plaster Statistics if anyone gives me posters to put up.

    I want a t-shirt. It would be nice if it was a campaign t-shirt, but it's more of a general request.

    Campaign t-shirts = £12 off of budget

  8. So are we now allowed to do things like scribble 'Vote Awesome' on blackboards before lectures, providing of course we aquire free chalk as not to affect the budget?
