LOGAN—Most USU students understand that something is taking place on campus when that February week of ASUSU campaigning begins: Fliers, candy, A-frames and posters litter the grounds while people chatter at student-voters trying to cross the center of campus.

However, there is more that goes into campaigning than just those things seen around campus. This year, in preparation for the Feb. 27 ASUSU elections week, there have been weekly meetings, discussion of publicity techniques, and the preparation for signs, posters and paraphernalia.

This year’s election week theme is “One Vote, One Voice, One Choice,” an event hosted by ASUSU.

“I would say that campaign preparations can be very stressful sometimes,” presidential candidate Christian Thrapp said.

Here is a schedule of the week for candidates–Elections Week 2012, Feb. 27–March 1.

  • Sunday Feb. 26: 4 p.m. Elections set-up; A-frames can be placed on campus by candidates
