Subscribing as candidates

The Samajwadi Party of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh is beginning the process of screening potential candidates for the 2012 state assembly election.

The Indian Express notes:

Over 3,500 candidates had applied for party ticket for the 403 seats after depositing a particular fee. They were also asked to take life membership of the party magazine “Samajwadi Bulletin”, the sources said.

That is one way to guarantee a subscriber base.
