#LibDemFightback and the Leadership election
Originally published by East Midlands Liberal Democrats
Since the polls closed on May 7th more than 14,000 members have joined the Liberal Democrats. 660 in the East Midlands. Many local parties are witnessing an unprecedented increase in new members.
All those who are members at 4pm on June 3rd will be eligible to vote in the Leadership election and will have a say in the future of our Party. The deadline is only a week away. So please make sure that you reach out to all of our supporters in your local party. We encourage our supporters to join online by going to http://www.libdems.org.uk/join.
For those who don't want to join online, please see an updated recruitment form by going to http://www.libdems.org.uk/libdemfightback-support-local-parties.
We've created a simple guide with a few ideas on how to engage your new members. You can download the guide by going to http://www.libdems.org.uk/libdemfightback-support-local-parties. We'll be adding more materials to this page in the coming days.
The Federal Party has created an events page (http://www.libdems.org.uk/events), so you can advertise your own events for local members and volunteers and the Federal Party will promote them for you.
In addition you can advertise your event on the East Midlands website by emailing email@example.com with date, time and venue including postcode. Invitations can be forwarded by local party, county or region.
We've created a page for the Leadership election. You can find all the information you need about the election by going to http://www.libdems.org.uk/leadership_election.
If you need any support or guidance at all, please contact our Members and Supporters Services team (http://www.libdems.org.uk/contact).
