Thursday 3 May 2018 sees a very challenging set of local elections taking place across the country.

To continue our excellent recent local by-election results and to provide a much-needed boost to the party’s momentum nationally, it’s paramount we get a good set of results.

With your generous support, we want to raise £20,000 to spend on direct mail to postal voters in 50 battleground wards.

Research suggests that postal voters are 2.5 times more likely to vote. Your financial support could make the difference in these close contests to ensure postal voters are targeted.

Please donate whatever you can:

What your donation will buy in our key battleground wards:

  • £25 will allow us to print and stuff 100 pieces of direct mail
  • £65 will cover the cost of artworking one mailing
  • £100 will pay for postage to 400 homes
  • £400 will allow us to mail every postal voter in a ward

Where has elections in 2018?

There are a lot of seats up for grabs as well as 459 defences. From all-out elections in London and many of our large cities, as well as numerous contests in metropolitan boroughs, unitary authorities and non-metropolitan districts. Not to mention five mayoral elections – including Lib Dem-held Watford.

Why donate to us?

We’re the party’s premier campaigning organisation for local elections and we’ve already pinpointed the 50 battleground wards to help. Every penny of your generous donations will go directly to winning more local election seats – none will be spent on central admin costs.

What impact will your donations make?

With your support, we can wake up on Friday 4 May to a great set of election results and a turning point for liberalism in Britain. A significant increase in the number of Liberal Democrat councillors elected will provide the perfect platform for the party to prosper ahead of whatever the future has in store.
