We would like to welcome you to the inaugural event to launch the Centre for British Politics at the University of Liverpool's Department for Politics.

The event will explain the political landscape after the 2024 local elections, and what it means for the upcoming general election. We will cover:

trends in party support and whether the polls can be trusted,
the impact of the shift from supplementary vote to first-past-the-post for mayoral and Police and Crime Commissioner elections,
provide unique insights into the challenges faced by female ethnic minority candidates,
how parties marketed themselves in the local elections and will in the general election,
issues around electoral integrity, and
how elections are run in the 21st century.
The event will be followed by a drinks reception.
