Lewisham East By-Election Greenwich Borough Meet 1

The Parliamentary By-Election in Lewisham East is a real chance to elect another Lib Dem MP. Labour had a large majority there in the last election, but the national Labour Party's position (or lack thereof) on Brexit, Corbyn's politics in general, and the furore around the candidate selection have contributed to a lot of voters being potentially willing to vote Lib Dem on this occasion.

But to ensure undecideds vote for a local Lib Dem, and that Labour and Conservative voters 'lend us their vote' to send a message to Westminster, the Lewisham Party needs as many volunteers as possible. They are campaigning every day from now until 14th June, so do help out when you can. The easiest way to find out what you can do is to sign up to the FaceBook Virtual HQ: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LewishamEastLibDemVHQ/ and/or keep an eye on their list of campaign events as they are updated nearer the time: https://www.libdems.org.uk/lewisham-events. This could be your chance to contribute to increasing the Lib Dem presence at Westminster; the last time this happened (with Sarah Olney's win in the Richmond Park by-election), we saw a surge in the polls nationally.

You can go as and when suits you, but every weekend we will have an organised Greenwich Borough trip, with a contact person you can meet up with on the day. There will be a range of activities (clerical work, envelope-writing and -filling, delivering, door-knocking). They had 100s of activists the first weekend, and we want to do our part to help too; in the future, I hope we will be in a similar position to request help from outside our Borough.

This weekend is a key weekend, as it will be focused on postal voters, who always have the highest turnout.
