That’s wonderful – thank you so much for saying you will vote for me as Liberal Democrat Party President.

If the party has a working email address for you in the membership records, you should get an email on Saturday 26 October from elections@libdems.org.uk with online voting instructions for both Party President and also the various other party bodies up for election. Watch out in your spam/junk folder for this email if you don’t see it land in your inbox that day. It will probably have the subject line, “Your vote in the Lib Dem Presidential and Internal Elections”.

However, if the party does not have a working email address in the records, then you will instead be sent a postal ballot. These will go out in the post on Thursday 24 October, second class, so should arrive a few days later.

If you’ve not received a ballot paper of any sort by Monday 28 October, then you can contact elections@libdems.org.uk, and if necessary a replacement ballot can be sent to you.

You will have until 5pm on Friday 8 November to vote.

It would also be super-helpful if you can help spread the word online. A strong showing of social media messages will both help remind people to vote and encourage them to vote for me.

Here’s is a little video from Layla Moran, that’d do just the trick. Just pick your social network(s) of choice:

Lots of supporters are using the hashtag #BackPack and/or the backpack emoji.

Thank you!
