General Election 2017

Over weeks of the General Election we will be offering a series of policy briefings on the manifestos and other election issues, a number of blogs and other resources to support our members. Check back here for updates or look out for our regular tweets and emails.

Policy and manifesto briefings

We are publishing briefings on the manifestos from the three main political parties.

We produced a briefing on practical election guidance for officers and councillors. This includes information on publicity, an update on individual electoral registration and postal votes, plus guidance on the role of councillors during election periods.

The local democracy blog

We will be posting a series of GE17 lite blogs over the the next three weeks with snippets from election world and links to more indepth LGiU content.

We will also publish some  blog articles on aspects of the campaigns that are particularly relevant to local government.
