On Election Day, when members read the union elections on the ballot, do they just guess who vote for – or do they just vote for someone they know?

Your Online Hub of Support
Here is some important content to include when developing a union candidate or a union organization website:
- Home Page: The home page text should change often, but to start, you may want to create a ‘letter to voters’ announcing your campaign, why you are running and what you hope to accomplish if you win. In time, you can update this text to include new developments or to shift
your focus from awareness to support-gathering.
- Biography/Resume: Start off with some personal information, such as family, time lived in the area, hobbies, etc. Then take your resume and work it into a short biography. Keep it short and bullet-pointed, but don’t simply make it a list of your work history. Work in a few words about what you did in those positions. Electing someone is more than just whether are qualified – voters need to like you, as well.
- Issues/Positions: This is the heart of your website content, and the most unique content you will create. Stake your positions against those of your opponent.
- Endorsements: Include organizations and direct quotes, where possible. Endorsements can be added throughout your site, particularly where they are relevant to a particular issue.
Use your website to keep in touch with supporters and send voting reminders before the election.
