General Election Briefing – 31 May 2017

Welcome to our latest General Election Briefing. There are now just nine days to go until polling day so lets make them count!

Make a move

Over the next nine days YOU can change the shape of this election. In key seats up and down the country, Liberal Democrat members from across the nation will be battling to return Lib Dem MPs. Don’t leave it to someone else to go and help; they might be leaving it to you. The federal party have created a handy website tool to tell you where you should help out.

Click here and enter your postcode to find out where your help will make the difference.

To be clear, if you are not currently in a Tier 1 Target seat, you should head to your nearest one and invest all of your campaigning energy there. Find which one you should go to.


ALDC members will know that we’re available to give advice on council and campaigning queries all year round. During General Election time we also run a special ‘Election Law Helpline’ for all Liberal Democrats. Find out more about this service.


Here at ALDC we provide the resources you need to campaign, all year every year. This is still the case during the General Election. Visit the links below to see some of the resources we’ve provided for your General Election Campaign so far:
