Something you can do to win Lib Dem votes today

The best message to win Liberal Democrat votes varies from contest to contest tomorrow as the issues at the top of voters’ minds in one place are not all the same as in another, especially when it comes to local council elections.

But with the Liberal Democrats in government, national issues cannot be ignored and there are many good messages to get over about what we’re achieving in government, from fairer taxes to banking reform, and from green investment to civil liberties improvements.

You can help get that message out by sharing with people you know the infographic I published earlier this year:

(Note: not all the points are applicable across all of the UK.)

PS And don’t forget:

* Mark Pack is Party President and is the editor of Liberal Democrat Newswire.

  • I’m voting lib dem as my first choice in my local council elections. That’s because my local lib dem does excellent work in the council, chases up matters on behalf of his constituents and is, to all appearances, a decent, honest man. He’s also ashamed by the actions of the Coalition.

    If you think for one minute that extolling the virtues of coalition is a winning strategy in large parts of the country (I’m in Scotland) then you are going to be very disappointed.

  • But what does the party do about a similar problem on the doorstep..??

    ‘Saying one thing at one time and another at another time’

    Quite a lot of people who voted for the party at the General Election have not quite forgotten that.

  • So to be clear then it’s ok to trumpet national issues in these local elections?

    I ask as this site made big issue of how wrong it was for Labour to do so in their broadcast……

    For my part my cross will be going against a Lid Dem candidate for local issues only. The candidate has not, nor will have any part in the good things the coalition has achieved or the bad. They will, I hope, continue the excellent record of Lib Dems in local authorities..
