Big increase in number of Lib Dem local election candidates

I’ve often written about the importance of standing more Liberal Democrat local election candidates, and this time around the whole party has made a big push to improve matters.

That push has paid off:

Thank you and congratulations to everyone who has contributed to this.

More work to do in future, but for the moment let’s celebrate a big increase this time – and now turn that into an increased number of Lib Dem councillors and councils next month too.

UPDATE: The polling on that final point is looking promising.

  1. Do the change figures factor in the number of seats up for election has reduced due to reorganisations?

    It would be interesting to see the change with respect to politically fought Town/Parish Councils. In 2019 the Tories had a full slate of 17 candidates for Yate TC – this year they only have three.

    • These figures are for principal authorities (i.e. not including town/parish/community councils), and the percentages are number of candidates as percentage of total seats up for election that year, i.e. the percentages for this time around do reflect that it’s a different seat total from last time.
