What’s going to happen in the 2018 local elections?

4,425 seats will be up for grabs on the 3rd of May. Anything other than them emulating last year's general election should be viewed with surprise.

Lily Jayne Summers1993 - 2016

On 16 December, 2016, the Co-Founder of Britain Elects, Lily Jayne Summers, sadly passed away.Lily was integral to the development of Britain Elects, working hard on every national election night since its founding in 2013. She was a passionate person committed to the politics she believed in, and she enjoyed the part she played in in helping set up Britain Elects. She was authentic, ambitious, funny, quick witted, always up for an argument, and heartwarming to those who knew her. She was a student at Swansea University, a council candidate for the Labour Party, and formerly active with the Salvation Army.She was a great colleague, but to me she was more my closest friend than anything else. Lily meant so much. I'm shocked and sorry to see her taken from this world at such a young age.- Ben Walker, Co-Founder
