LGiU Fortnightly is our new podcast, bringing you the latest news from the world of local government. We update you on the key events from the past fortnight, as well as news from us and our members, so you’re always in the loop. We’re always looking for more ways to bring you the information you need in a way that works around your busy schedule – let us know what you think by tweeting us @LGiU.

This week, Ingrid Koehler and Jonathan Carr-West host a Local Election special as we count down to May 3rd. Jonathan speaks to Peter Stanyon, Chief Executive of the Association of Electoral Administrators, about what goes on behind the scenes on polling day. We also bring you the highlights from our local election communications guide, tips on open data and our analysis of the political landscape. Plus our regular roundup of local government news and recent LGiU briefings.
