The Isle of Wight Conservative Association organises a number of campaigns, mainly focused around local and general 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 town and parish council elections and by-elections.
The next scheduled elections are the Police & Crime Commissioner elections in 2020, the elections to the Isle of Wight Council (and town / parish councils) in 2021 and a General Election at any time up until 2022.
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.
Several years back, the Island Conservatives were 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.
