The Liberal Democrat Voice Awards 2014: The Shortlists

This morning,  party members registered on our members’ forum were sent an email giving them a link to vote on the shortlists for our Awards, due to be presented in Glasgow on Saturday night.

Before I go any further, I want to say a massive thank you to Mary Reid for doing most of the work on this year’s event while I was distracted with some little thing going on here in Scotland. Also thanks to Stephen Tall and Ryan Cullen for doing the technical stuff.
