#notwestminster Election Special
Wednesday 29th April 2015

From 7.30pm to 9pm


Got something to say about how voters, candidates, councils and the media are making use of digital during the elections? Got something to share about what you’re working on? Got a wish list of useful digital stuff for future local elections? Want to make connections with people who can help you do things differently with digital?


Join us for a twitter discussion on Wednesday 29th April 2015, starting at 7.30pm. We’ll be tweeting live from the PechaKucha Election Special at the Media Centre in Huddersfield. We’ll share some of what’s being talked about on the night and ask you about some of the election issues that we’re thinking about. It’s a chance to share whatever you’d like to say about digital democracy during the elections – with a distinct focus on local democracy.


How to take part: Tweet using #notwestminster or follow us @LDBytes
