This year we are offering every candidate 1,000 free leaflets, printed by UWSU. You can provide one single side of A5 of artwork of your choice (as long as it doesn’t break our Election Handbook rules). You can get creative using free online tools like Canva.
These will be available to collect from Debate Night.
Submit your artwork in PDF or Photo format to email@example.com.
If since you’ve submitted your 300 word manifesto you’ve decided you want to tweak it a little bit, then you can send an updated version of your 300 word manifesto for us to change for you.
You can send this to firstname.lastname@example.org

Pop along to our Candidate Craft Zone where you will have access to: plain white t-shirts, cardboard boxes, single white sheets, fabric markerss, flipchart pens, white tac.

We will be announcing the Candidate List this day, so you will be able to start properly telling people you are running for this role.
This day is also when our Student Groups can start endorsing candidates. To do so, they will need to follow the Student Group Endorsement process. As a candidate, you can approach groups and ask them if they are planning to do an endorsement process, and offer to send them information on yourself to help them make their decision. Once a group has endorsed you, they can campaign for you on their behalf.
It will remain open from 7am-7pm each day, until Thursday 20th February at 7pm. Students will not be able to vote overnight in these elections, to enable you some time to put your feet up, relax and recharge.
We will be hosting candidate chill out spaces across each of the campuses to give you a comfortable place to rest your feet. Each day we will also be hosting a Candidate Breakfast, which will be rotating between campuses:
You will also get a small additional budget, which you can spend on your campaign. You must keep a copy of receipts and submit them before 7pm on the day voting closes using our online form. You can find more information on what you need to include on your expenses in the election handbook.
As voting closes join us for a slice of pizza and a chance to wind down from a busy week. In Marylebone M219.
Join us from 5pm in the Hideaway at Regent Street to find out the results. Bring your friends and party the night away after. Let us know if you can’t make it, and, if you’d like, send us over a speech you would like us to read if you were successful.
