Thursday 7 May 2020 sees a very challenging set of local elections across many councils in England.

To build on our success in 2019 – at the local elections, the European elections and in council by-elections – it’s very important that we get a good set of results in 2020. With your generous support, we want to raise £20,000 to spend on direct mail to key voters in 100 marginal seats. Your financial support could make the difference in these close contests.

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 squeeze mail
  • £65 will cover the cost of artworking one mailing
  • £100 will pay for postage to 400 homes
  • £400 will allow us to send two sets of squeeze mailings to a ward

Where has elections in 2020?

118 English councils have local elections this year, as well as three directly elected mayors and five combined authority mayors. Elections will also be held for the London Assembly and for 40 Police and Crime Commissioners in England and Wales.

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 council wards – none will be spent on central admin costs.

What impact will your donations make?

With your support, we can wake up on Friday 8 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.
