We're back!
ulsuelect.com will be covering the elections, like last year.

We are still tampering with the election feed, which includes as much up to date information found on the web as we can grab. All tweets with the tags #voteUL will appear, as well as other source as we find them.

hey guys, Dave Hartery here.

I'll be using my usual boards account for the election season, see no reason to start another one.

Best of luck to everyone running! Should be an interesting week.

Ahhh my favourite time of the year

Pity no ladies decided to throw their names in for President!

I must admit that I'm concerned should both Kelly and Paddy be fortunate to be deemed elected, considering they don't appear to be the best of friends. This is even more important this year as the number of sabbats are down to 4. What do people think?

I certainly won't be voting for Paddy Rockett. Anyone who lacks the ability to analyse something before jumping on the bandwagon shouldn't be let anyway near an important position like Education.

One of many reasons why they shouldn't be elected.

It would mean 50% of our sabbats could be fighting like petulant children all year

Right, better get my declaration out of the way.

I'll be campaigning actively (well, sort of) for Kelly O'Brien in the race to become the next Welfare Bear(!). Not sure where I'm going after that, but either way I'd like to congratulate all the candidates on getting nominated and wish them all the very best of luck for next week.

No cambridge?!

I think the team of Eamon, Jackie and Will would be perfect! Fresh faces, new ideas, just what we need. I'll be canvassing for Jackie next week as I really don't think we should bring Paddy back for another year!

I'm campaigning for the Inanimate Carbon Rod https://www.facebook.com/ULSUInanimateRod

The Rod is daring enough to put forward campaign points that no one else is willing to. I think Rod would be the best non person for the job!

To get the declaration out of the way, I'll be semi-actively campaigning for Kelly O'Brien for Welfare. Other than that, I have no other affilations to any other candidate.

I have to admit I'm really concerned about this too. I'd have serious reservations that they could work well together given the air of tension which has come out this year. And it has the potential to get even worse next year, were both of them to be elected.

I'd hope that one of the main things both candidates would clarify is that they will put this crap behind them were they to be elected and work on guiding the Union through this situation.

I'm campaigning for William Jennings.

He's a really dedicated, caring passionate guy who will put everything he can into this role. From personal experience I am confident that he's going to do a great job and bring a new fresh perspective.

Will 4 Welfare!!
William, Jackie and Eamonn 2012.

People are surprised that Mr. Cambridge didn't make the card! Are any among the self anointed capable of carrying his visionary torch of change? I hope so and wish those that are new to campaigning the best of luck. I think paddy should apply for a job in the stables if he wants to contuinue his nefarious ways.

Hi everyone, Stephen here from Thomond Student Times.
I just want to put this on here as well as on Facebook and Twitter so that nobody can claim they missed it.

We will be filming a short interview with each of the candidates early next week, more than likely on Tuesday morning. It will take about 10 minutes. Some of the candidates are already on board. If you want to be a part of it, either contact us on facebook or at info@thomondstudenttimes.com

Best of Luck to all candidates.

Stephen Byrne
