Southampton Hustings: All You Need to Know

This gives them the opportunity to ask questions, expand on their policies and generally convince the public why they should vote for them. Both SUSU and the local community have arranged a variety of hustings over the next few days, so make sure you attend if you are currently unsure of who to vote for!
