Campus Pick: How to cover a student election

Maclean’s On Campus gives props to Wassim Garzouzi for probably the best student union election coverage in the country. Garzouzi has been single-handedly running a daily (sometimes hourly) blog detailing every aspect of the elections for the student union at the University of Ottawa. Garzouzi has provided an exhaustive guide on how to win a presidential by-election and even provided videos and links to other oh-so-interesting student elections across the country. He’ll be live blogging (inspired by our own Kady O’Malley) as the votes come in.

Who would have guessed a student election could be so exciting? Well, apparently the hundreds of daily readers of his site are excited. And so are we.
