Campaign Posters
Campaigning materials, in all likelihood, will be required to help educate the campus about your proposed reforms. In the successful campaign for STV in 2003, the University of California, Davis used three different campaign posters.  Follow the link and scroll down to the bottom of the page to view these posters.

:The above are just some examples to get you started. For a successful poster remember to keep the following in mind
  • Keep the message simple
  • Clean, concise wording and graphics work the best
    • Having visual ‘clutter’ on the poster detracts from the message
  • If you have different posters, try to keep the color schemes and fonts the same for each poster
    • It’ll provide continuity and easy recognition for the voter
  • Have contact info or better yet, a website, where the voter can go for more information on the campaign
  • Know your audience – it’ll be important to know whether you should use posters that’ll make the voter think or whether to use more ‘professional’ posters etc.
