Three Ways To Get Involved
Shepway Liberal Democrats campaign all year round across Folkestone and Hythe on issues that really matter to local people. From the most local street issues to backing campaigners working to stop Lydd airport expansion, to fighting to retain local hospital wards - the Liberal Democrats are working for the whole area. However you can help, our campaigning relies on volunteers and donations - we are not backed by big business and trade unions, and our leaflets and campaigning are paid for and distributed through local donations and support.
Make a Donation
Unlike the Conservatives who receive many large donations from big businesses and multi-millionaires, the Liberal Democrats mainly rely on our members and supporters for funding. With thousands of supporters across the country each making a small donation, we raise our funds to pay for leaflets, newspapers and campaigning.
Every extra pound we have to spend in Folkestone and Hythe will be spent on local campaigning.
Every pound of your donation will help us make our campaigning here in Folkestone and Hythe even more effective. Lynne Beaumont and the Liberal Democrats fight with local residents on issues that matter to local people, like saving the Folkestone Leas Lift from closure, fighting Kent County Council waste, fighting for justice for Gurkhas and more.
Just £20 would pay for 1,000 leaflets to deliver to local homes. £80 would pay for enough leaflets for an entire ward. £240 would pay for all our web site and on line campaigning costs for a year. £500 would pay for a posted letter to 1,000 voters. Whatever amount you can afford, your donation will make a difference.
Whatever you can afford, your donation would be used to make a real difference to the campaign.

Make Sure You Can Vote
At each election, many people fully intend to vote but then end up busy on pollling day and don't get the chance to make their voice heard.
Make sure your vote and voice is heard by making sure you are on the register, and applying for a postal vote. Every elector is entitled to vote by post, and your ballot paper will be sent to you around 2 weeks before polling day, with clear instructions and a reply paid envelope. You can vote at home, and return your vote before polling day - otherwise it's so easy to forget!
If you are a registered elector in Folkestone and Hythe, you can register to vote by post using the link below, complete the form and return to the address supplied. If you are not sure if you are on the electoral register and entitled to vote, you can either use the link below to register, or call Shepway Council Electoral Registration helpline on 01303 852497.
