In less than two weeks, students throughout University of Michigan will submit an online ballot to determine who will represent the leaders and best as the President of the Central Student Government next year. Each year, the candidates campaign. They debate. They work to make their platform known, so that students can make an informed vote. Yet, some students report that they feel uninformed about who exactly the candidates are. Many either vote for their friends, or choose to support a party that generally aligns with their views. We at WOLV-TV want to fight that stigma; we want all students to log on to the election website on March 21st with a clear idea of exactly who they want to see lead us in the 2012-2013 school year. We want you to make an informed decision.
On Friday, March 16th, Wake Up with WOLV will be airing their first-ever “Meet the Candidates” special. All of the CSG Presidential candidates are invited to present their platform live as our anchors, Lauren Blanchard and Hadas Brown, relay the questions that you want to ask. These interviews will allow you to see the candidates in a candid format, and hear what they plan to do if elected.
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! Send us your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will ask the candidates as many questions as we can, so that students can get all the information they need to feel confident in their vote. Be sure to tune in to channel 55 in the residence halls Friday at 11 AM, and if you do not have access to a dorm television at that time, you can also watch it online once it is posted on our website.
