Thursday 2 May 2019 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 £30,000 to spend on squeeze mailings in 100 marginal wards.

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 2019?

There are 264 English local councils with elections: 33 metropolitan boroughs (one-third of the seats are up), 179 district councils (130 all up, 49 one-thirds), 47 unitary authorities (30 all up, 17 one-thirds), plus five mayoral elections (including Bedford, with Mayor Dave Hodgson, Lib Dem, defending). And the majority of town and parish councils in England too.

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 3 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.
