Become a Member and Vote for our New Leader

Welcome to the Liberal Democrat leadership election. Now is the perfect time to become a party member, and help us choose the best person to lead us into the future.


To be part of the leadership process you must be a registered member by midnight on the 9th of July. Voting in the leadership election means you get a say in shaping our future.

Joining the party also means you’ll be part of a growing membership in Horsham and West Sussex. The Liberal Democrats are the lead opposition in both the district and county councils. If we believe in change, the Liberal Democrats are the only way we’re going to get it.
