Happy New Year! 2018 is now upon us and we are all feeling that back to work feeling. This week we are being broken in gently with only the 1 Principal Council By-Election.
In Borehamwood Cowley Hill (Hertsmere BC) Paul Robinson took 1.7% of the vote for the Liberal Democrats in a seat that they have not stood in since 2006 while Labour gained the seat from the Conservatives.

Full details of last nights By-Election results can be found on the ALDC’s By-Election Results page and details of that is coming next on our Forthcoming Elections page. Hat Tip to Britain Elects for their results too.
Well done to all who stood last night regardless of the result. It is really important that we stand candidates in all by-elections in order to build the habit of voting Liberal Democrat. If there is no candidate of ours on the ballot paper we are depriving someone of their ability to vote for us. If you are interested in standing as a candidate please get in touch with your Local Party or ALDC.
