The Rules

Rules of the Elections:

You need to:

Produce a Manifesto A4 Colour. This is a piece of paper which can include; who you are, why you want to join the Students' Union

 and what changes you want to make the college better. Put your photo on it so people know who you are.

Email your manifesto to the Student Activities staff su@canterburycollege.ac.uk

We will:

Print these in a book for people to read before they vote - they will also be able to be seen when people vote online.

You need to:

Get a campaign going, use your friends to get others to vote, use Facebook and Twitter. Create a group and a buzz about your

campaign. Giveaways are good but make sure people vote for your issues not your freebies. You can also do anything else to get

attention as long as it doesn’t put anyone in harm, break the law, damage college property or involve bribery.  The best way is to

talk to as many people as you can, giving them a copy of your manifesto.

We will:

Add these to our Facebook to show all our members what is happening.  Friend Canterbury Coll SU to keep up to date.

You need to:

Arrange a time to do a video manifesto. These can be up to 30 seconds and can just be you reading your manifesto.

We will:

Edit these together and put them on Facebook and play them at the voting booth and put them on all our social media channels.

 

You need to:

Get people to vote for you. Voting is all done online via a link on the College Website. Only registered students can vote. Students can

Vote at any time using a link from the Students’ Union website.

We will:

Set up a “Booth” with PC’s for people to vote on.  We will also have the manifestos and job roles up and the video of manifestos.

You will not be allowed near the booth once it is up.

There will be a line around it to show where you can stand.

 

You need to:

Campaign positively. This means no taking down opponent’s posters. No slagging off opponents.

Talk about what you will do not, what others won’t do.

We will:

Make sure all candidates do this. If we find one isn’t, they will be given one warning. After that they will be removed from the election.
