Voting has officially opened as of 10.00am this morning in your 2020 Officer elections, and with an impressive 4,000 votes now already cast, 20 Bar One food and drinks items have 40p off right NOW! For every 1,000 votes cast, there will be an extra 10p off the items.
Candidates returned to campaigning this morning after the official campaign rest day yesterday which meant no physical or social media campaigning, however, intermittent rain meant there was scant activity on the concourse. 
Despite the weather, all candidates were given the opportunity to give a soapbox speech to crowds gathered under the concourse bridge, hosted by current Activities Officer, Martha Evans. Most candidates delivered speeches with issues from sustainability to Tier 2 visas being discussed.
Candidates will continue to campaign tomorrow and Wednesday, when voting closes at 5.00pm. You can vote here: 
The results will be announced at a ceremony in Foundry from 7.00pm on Thursday 12 March and Forge Press will be working through the night to bring you the latest coverage in Issue 143 on Friday 13 March.
