This is slightly off the beaten track election wise. I didn’t even know there was an election for Provost of Trinity until I was contacted and asked if I’d like some leaflets from that election (Many thanks to the sender). I’m fairly sure the electorate is fairly small but thought this might be of interest.
This is a leaflet from Jane Ohlmeyer, currently the Erasmus Smith’s Professor of Modern History at Trinity College Dublin, which was part of her campaign to become Provost.
I’ve leaflets from other candidates which I’ll post in due course.



“Kiss With Your Eyes Closed -Vote With Your Eyes Open” -Ivana Bacik -2004 Euro Elections September 16, 2010

From the 2004 European Elections flyers from Labour candidate Ivana Bacik. She failed to win a seat.
The flyers caused a bit of a stir at the time given the association between kissing and voting. They were distributed in pubs and clubs during the campaign.
The sender (many thanks) notes “..original Ivana Bacik postcard from Euro election 2004. This version was used as a postcard, a large version was used for washroom adverts. The reverse side of this postcard has a sticker that was used at a post – election thank you event.”
I gather the initial flyers (a the bottom of the post)  I posted were an online one.
