Emails with online voting links have been landing in London Lib Dem members’ inboxes over the last day.
The emails are from firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line The Liberal Democrats – London Mayoral Candidate and London List Candidates Selection Ballots 2015. If you think you should have received one but haven’t, it’s worth checking for emails matching this description in your spam folder.
Members for whom the party doesn’t have a working email address are receiving voting information through the post and all London members, regardless of how long they have been a member, can vote in this selection thanks to a very sensible move by Mike Tuffrey and London Region.
There’s only one candidate for the London Mayor selection, Caroline Pidgeon, for the reasons explained here and you can see the list of candidates for the London list here.
All Liberal Democrat Members who are registered at an address in London before June 4th 2015 are eligible to vote. We have temporarily suspended the one-year membership eligibility rule so that the high volume of new members who have joined the Party will be able to cast their vote in this selection.
Online voting closes at noon on 16th September, and before that there is a hustings near Euston on 4th September.
Here are the manifestos from them all, included in with the ballot mailing – and Uber gets a mention.Lib-Dem-GLA-selection-candidate-manifestos-2015
