This chapter examines another aspect of electioneering: appeal to, and the involvement of, the wide community of electoral politics. In the first section, the cultural trappings in which the various political parties cloaked their appeal are considered through an examination of newspapers, posters, squibs, electoral songs, and pamphlets. Attention then turns to consider the public conduct of the electoral campaign. Here, the relationship between candidate and constituency was at its most volatile and unpredictable. It shows that at certain moments in the campaign — the Nomination, at public meetings — the unenfranchised intruded upon the electoral process in ways which party organizers could not control. How the community responded to and rationalized these destabilizing interludes is the subject of the second section.
