There are lots of different ways in which your society can be involved with KCLSU elections – here are just a few ideas.
1. Invite the candidates to one of your events or meetings
You could give them all a few minutes to introduce themselves and their campaigns, or they could just talk to your members face-to-face.
2. Host a Q&A or hustings event
Our guide to hosting an accessible and inclusive Q&A event can be found here. It is really important that you consider seriously the accessibility of an event that requires candidates to attend and answer questions in person, since it requires a lot of time and energy during an already busy and difficult week for candidates.
3. Promote the elections in general
Mention them at your events, post on social media about them, and generally encourage your members to vote!
4. Publish information about what you are looking for in a candidate
this will help students who are thinking of standing understand what is important to your society.
5. Endorse candidates
Our guide to endorsing candidates can be found here.
6. Ask questions
You can contact candidates on Facebook and Twitter, or through any contact info they give in their manifestos, and ask them for their positions on particular issues.
