The Conservatives only need to win nine more seats than in 2017 to unblock Parliament and get it working again - and our campaigns in key seats across the West Midlands are going to be critical to making that happen.
As Director of Campaigning, my job is to manage our team of experienced campaign managers across the country and ensure they are helping our candidates run the best campaigns possible.
Here in the West Midlands we hold 34 of the 59 seats. To win this election we need to hold all of these, while picking up some of the 23 Labour seats and 2 seats held by other parties.
It’s not going to be easy.
But we’ve got a very clear message: a Conservative majority government will Get Brexit Done with a deal, get Parliament working again, and turbocharge our economy to unleash Britain’s potential.
The alternative is - quite frankly - a terrifying prospect: a Corbyn-led government with higher taxes and reckless spending, or a hung Parliament with more dither, more delay, and more uncertainty.
What we need to do is get out there on the doorstep, on the phones, and online to make sure everyone understands what is at stake this election.
To do that, I need your help.
Here’s what you can do to help us run the best possible campaign across the West Midlands:
Register for a postal vote
Applying for a postal vote is important if you will find it difficult reaching a polling station or if you are away or busy on 12th December.
We have built a tool to make it easy for you to apply for a postal vote - click here to do it now.
Join us on a campaign day
We're campaigning hard across the West Midlands. Sign up as a volunteer on our volunteer website and our local teams will be in contact with opportunities to get involved in your area.
Events might not always be in your constituency, but rest assured they’ll be in places where your support would make the most difference. Do please venture further afield if possible.
Winning elections ultimately comes down to speaking to voters. That means phone canvassing, direct mail, social media ads and printing leaflets. All of this costs money.
Your contribution to our campaign fund means we can get our message in front of more voters in the seats where it will really make a difference. Will you chip in to keep Jeremy Corbyn out of Downing Street?
This election is a choice between driving real change for our country or more of the same old politicians arguing.
With your help, we can elect that Conservative majority in Parliament that can get Brexit done, so we can unleash Britain’s potential.
Thanks for your support,
Director of Campaigning, Conservative Party
