That depends on the type of media. The broadcast media (radio and TV) are required to make sure their coverage is balanced. Since there are more than a hundred candidates, in practice this means that they won’t cover much that directly involves candidates – because it is very difficult to give so many people equal treatment. The print media is likely to go into Election coverage in a bit more depth.
In previous elections, most media outlets have done some kind of election special – a supplement in the Press, one-minute manifestos on the radio. If you are offered the opportunity to take part in those this time around, take it. It is a good way of reaching an engaged audience.
