What to do now you have chosen to run in the election

Once all the nominations are in the Student Participation Officer (Megan Mcloughlin) will contact you to get your campaign started. 

First thing you need to think about is what you want to change, this will help to form your manifesto.

Manifesto

What is a manifesto?

This is a list of your ideas, things that you want to change and why people should pick you.

This needs to be quick and to the point but show exactly what you want to do and change.

Try not to make promises that you can’t keep, be realistic with your promises as you want to make sure that you can deliver them!

Show how you will make the changes promised using skills and experiences you already have along with your personality. 

 

Key things to include

What you intend to do

Opinions - what you believe

Vision, what you want to see/change in the future

Campaigning

Your chance to get out and about and talk about how you will put your manifesto into action and why should people vote for you.

 

Get your face known around your campus and make sure people know exactly who you are on Election Day.

 

What is the best way to get your name out there?

 

Posters around college so your face is recognised and for people to know exactly what you are promising.

 

Design a Powerpoint Slide for your manifesto to go on the TV screens around the College. 

 

Write a bio about yourself to go on the SU website.
