It’s that time of year again - Edinburgh University Students’ Association is about to hold its annual election, and a fresh group of candidates are here to contest 60 positions. The four main, paid positions (known as “sabbaticals”) - president, vice president services, vice president societies & activities, and vice president academic affairs - often have multiple fairly high-profile campaigns running in the week before the election, and these campaigns usually include a website. Or, at least, they did.
And it seems like this year has been the year Facebook won, with only six of the fifteen sabbatical candidates even creating a website, and only three going as far as registering a domain name.
Other than the websites, all that’s left outside the walled garden of Facebook are the YouTube videos, which I’ve created a playlist of.
As for the sites, let’s have a look at them, shall we?
Disclaimer: this is intended to be a technical overview of the candidate websites and is not a judgement of their policies. I do have preferred candidates and have tried to ensure this does not influence what I say about them. If you feel I have been unfair to a candidate, please leave a comment or tweet me @wraend.
