ALDC is organising a national fortnight of action to help you build the number of Liberal Democrat supporters who are signed up as postal voters. Experience has shown that postal voters are significantly more likely to vote than ‘regular’ voters – particularly in local elections – and it is important to make it easy for our supporters to use their vote.
With the huge differential in likely turnout, the postal vote is an opportunity that campaigners and councillors cannot afford to miss.
We are asking members to lead the fortnight of action in your area from Saturday 25 February onwards.
The first task will be to deliver a direct mail to Lib Dem supporters who do not have a postal vote, with a follow-up doorstep call a week or so later.
Materials, which can be bought through our partnership with Election Workshop, include a ready to deliver recruitment direct mail with postal vote form, and a postal vote knock-up leaflet (for the second week).
We will be releasing our campaign pack shortly. It will include: the templates and advice on how to organise your action day.
Our Election Workshop deal
Scores of ALDC members contact us for recommendations of printers and requests to lay out leaflets. In response, we are teaming up with Election Workshop to offer members affordable print, direct mail, artwork and campaign materials. In return, Election Workshop are making an agreed donation to the ALDC Fighting Fund for every single order.
