This time next week, Vince Cable will be the former leader of the Liberal Democrats.
Ballots close at 1pm on Monday 22nd July. That means you have six days to have your say on where our party goes next.
Later that day, either Ed Davey or Jo Swinson will be announced as our party’s new leader. They’re both fantastic candidates and either would make a fine leader for the Lib Dems going forward. You can find out more about their plans for our party here:
Our new leader will inherit a much stronger party. We have nearly 800 more councillors, 15 new MEPs and we’re surging in the polls. We have over 10,000 new members in the last 2 months alone – it’s a great time to be a Liberal Democrat.
Bumped into our @LibDems leadership candidates @joswinson & @EdwardJDavey whilst at the BBC recording The Week In Westminster (here 22mins in https://t.co/Lh42OqJ8F2). Our contest has been thoughtful, respectful and full of optimism – compare and contrast to the Tory shambles! pic.twitter.com/DR4cHs3t6J

That makes this leadership election important. Politics is in flux – with the way things are going you could well be electing our next Prime Minister. It’s important you have your say.
