‘Your Voice’ posters torn down

The ‘Your Voice’ ticket, led by Presidential candidate Lark Hare in the OUSA election, has had 28 of their campaign posters around campus torn down, largely those in the Castle Lecture Theatres, according to Bryn Jenkins, who is the Your Voice candidate for Education Officer. He says it has cost the team around $30 from their campaign budget. 

William Guy, who is the Administrative VP candidate for the ‘Hugh Baird for President’ campaign said he didn’t know anything about it and denied any involvement, though he did comment that he thought it was “kind of funny.”

William in turn raised questions about the placement of the Your Voice posters, which were in large blocks on the bollards and had made it difficult for other candidates to place posters in good positions. The Hugh Baird ticket had opted to place many of their posters in a bright yellow border around the purple Your Voice signs. 

Critic was unable to contact Hashmatullah Lafraie, the independent candidate.
