Campaigns

The Isle of Wight Conservative Association organises a number of campaigns, mainly focused around local, general and European elections. It also campaigns on important local issues in between elections, highlighting the matters of concern to Island residents. Campaigns are also fought for all IW Council by-elections and support is given to Conservative members standing in parish council elections and by-elections.

The next scheduled elections are the European elections on Thursday 22nd May 2014 and the General Election on Thursday 7th May 2015.

From time to time, the Island Conservatives provide mutual aid to neighbouring Conservatives in Hampshire, to help their candidates in their local and general elections. Hampshire and the Isle of Wight Conservatives also work together in the election campaign for the Police & Crime Commissioner - a role which serves both counties.

Over recent years, the Island Conservatives have been involved in two successful campaigns - campaigning for a No Vote in the AV referendum, and campaigning for One Wight (to ensure that the Island does not share a parliamentary constituency with the mainland). More details of these campaigns can be found by clicking on the links on the left.

All campaigns are funded locally through money raised by Conservative Party members and supporters.
