Pulling out all the stops

The party is pulling out all the stops in the last few days of campaigning before next Thursday's big polling day, and candidates need your help to deliver some good results.

On 15th November there will be three Parliamentary by-elections, a City Mayoral Poll in Bristol and voting will also take place for the new Police and Crime Commissioners.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Lib Dem Ministers have been out campaigning in all the Parliamentary by-elections. Nick has made a point of visiting several times the constituencies of: Cardiff South and Penarth, where the candidate is Dr Bablin Molik; Corby, where Jill Hope is standing for the Lib Dems following Louise Mensch's resignation (see photo above) and Manchester Central, where Marc Ramsbottom is fighting the seat vacated by Labour MP Tony Lloyd.

The Party Leader has also been campaigning in Bristol to support Dr Jon Rogers, the well-known Liberal Democrat candidate and local doctor, who is campaigning hard for the new Mayoralty in the City.

The Party Leader told Lib Dem News: "Campaigners from across the UK have been working tirelessly to promote Liberal Democrats in the upcoming elections. And our candidates have been doing an incredible job to reach out to voters, in often very difficult circumstances. I applaud their effort, tenacity and dedication.

"I wish everyone facing by-elections and PCC elections the best of luck. And with just a few days to go before polling day, I would encourage anyone not already involved, wherever they live, to do whatever they can to help."
