ALDC launches its Election Law Helpline

It is vital that everyone in the Liberal Democrats stays on the right side of the law throughout the forthcoming election campaigns, and ALDC are on hand to help you do this through our Election Law Helpline – launching on Thursday 1 March 2018.

The team at ALDC are providing free election law advice to campaigners in England for their forthcoming local elections, regardless of whether you are a member of ALDC.

They can provide practical issues around election law – nominations, DNOs, imprints, expenses, etc. as well as detailed queries about election law issues. Guidance is available on issues such as libel and defamation.

If you are a candidate or agent this May, there are three ways you can access advice:

By email

Email us your queries and ALDC will make sure that the most appropriate person deals with your query as quickly as possible. Contact us at [email protected] to make sure your request gets to us as soon as possible.

By Phone

Phone us on 0161 212 1012 between 9.30am – 5.00pm Monday – Friday to be put through to the next available adviser. Outside these hours please leave an answerphone message and we will get back in touch as soon as we can.

Online

ALDC members can also browse their up-to-date advice resources in our members’ website.

Claire Halliwell, Campaigns and HQ Team manager said,

We are not lawyers and will not be able to give formal legal opinion, but we can help talk you through the issues and what needs to be considered.

* ALDC is the Association of Liberal Democrat Councillors and Campaigners

    First Tories are Nazi's and now Labour are Stalinists. This is way over the top and not doing us any favours.
