A period of time given to candidates to get their name out, promote their policies and win votes.
After nominations close candidates have a period of time to promote themselves, their views and their policies.
This usually includes posters, flyers, talking to as many teams, societies and individuals as possible to gain feedback on ideas and to encourage other to vote for them.
Each candidate has to set a budget for campaigning and is only allowed to spend up to a set amount of money. So JCR positions will be allowed £10, FTOs £30.
