At LGiU Scotland, we covered the 2017 local elections elections from start to finish. Before the elections, we looked at the manifestos and blogged about the new generation of councillors being elected this May. On polling day, we showed our support for local government around Scotland and tweeted updates on the elections.
On results day, our team was based in Falkirk and Glasgow, live tweeting and commenting on the latest developments as well as providing our members with a full breakdown of the results. After the elections, we focused on introducing new councillors to the world of local government, with briefings, blogs and more. Throughout the elections, our Daily News service kept our members informed.
