Council by-election latest – June 15th 2018

Elections weren’t just being held for Parliament last night – there were also two Council by-elections, a delayed election in Southwark (with three seats up for grabs!) and a by-election in Doncaster.

In London Bridge & West Bermondsey, we pulled off a stunning win – winning all three seats that were up for grabs.

Not every result can be as stunning as London Bridge, sadly, but we’re so glad to see the team in Doncaster putting up a candidate and giving people the chance to vote Liberal Democrat. Every time we’re on the ballot is a chance to build for the future.

But we’ve got to do it all again in May, so if you want to be part of making 2019 a great year for the Liberal Democrats, sign up to volunteer today:
