Voting for the next Lib Dem party president starts a week today

Libby - Some rghts reserved by David SpenderA week today, Wednesday, 29th October, ballot papers will be sent to all c.44,000 Lib Dem members enabling us to vote for the next Party President in succession to Tim Farron, who’s held the post for the past four years. Other than the party leader, the presidency is currently the only other post in the Lib Dems determined by a vote of all its members.

Three candidates successfully secured nomination — click on their names to follow the links to their campaign websites:

The ballot will close in just over a month, Wednesday, 26th November. The result will be announced on Saturday, 29th November.

All three candidates have written for Lib Dem Voice — you can read articles written by them to help make up your mind about who to vote for by clicking on the following links:

Lib Dem Voice polled party members in our most recent survey — you can read what it said here. We’ll be conducting a further poll shortly now the candidates for the post have been confirmed.

    In my view, only Liz Lynne has the gravitas, independence of thought and width of experience to be President. Vote Liz!

    I usually agree with the remarks made by Helen Tadcastle but, on this occasion, I’m afraid we have to disagree. I shall be casting my vote for Daisy Cooper for all sorts of reasons – youth, enthusiasm and an ambition for change among them. I really regret that the current out-moded and restrictive nomination process resulted in Linda Jack being unable to stand. I hope that she will continue to be a prominent voice in the party on policy matters.

  • Are we banned from asking questions about the Guardian piece on Liz then?

    chrisB it appears so.
    My previous comment and link to the Guardian article has been removed. I regret that ignoring the issue will not make it go away nor will it result in a good outcome for the party.
