Socialist Party standard-bearer Fancourt spent the day knocking doors in Bricksburg to introduce herself to the electorate. Being from a minor political party without even a seat in Parliament, Fancourt has worked on increasing her name recognition. Many citizens are fed up big business's inability to cater to their needs, as shown by the gasoline shortage last month. Economic disparity is becoming an issue in the country, as the wealthiest 10% control 30% of the nation's wealth. Many citizens are unable to find jobs and are on welfare, which stresses the government's resources. Fancourt is attempting to tap into this resentment of the wealthy to gain grassroots support for her campaign. However, her campaign is badly under-funded because corporations and wealthy donors oppose her socialist policies.
"I believe that Elizabeth [Fancourt] will advocate for ordinary citizens like me, which I just can't trust Studsbury or David to do. I supported President Bricks in the 2012 election, but she just isn't doing enough to help us now," said citizen Ryan Studsbourg.
The Lego Republic Media Group is expected to release preliminary poll numbers in the coming days, and the Office of Elections will be sharing the September campaign finance report, which will indicate the amount of money raised by each of the candidates, at the end of the month.
