About us

Welcome to the East Lothian Conservative and Unionist Association website.

On this website you can keep up to date with all the latest news from the Association, as well as finding out more about how you can join the Party and help us to campaign for elections to Westminster, Holyrood and the East Lothian Council.

In the 2017 local government elections we were pleased to have returned a record number of Conservative Councillors representing all wards within East Lothian. If you would like to find out more about our councillors you can find further details here.  

On 18th September 2014, in the most important political decision to be taken in our country for generations,  Scotland rejected independence, deciding instead to remain within a strong United Kingdom. It was particularly pleasing that East Lothian had the 6th best result in Scotland with a 62% NO vote on an 87.6% turnout.

At the 2015 General Election, we attracted 2,000 more votes than the previous General Election.  This momentum carried us in to the 2016 Holyrood elections which culminated in Rachael Hamilton MSP being elected as member for South of Scotland.  Rachael was successful in winning the 2017 Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire by-election meaning our constituency is now represented by Michelle Ballantyne MSP.

At the 2017 General Election, our vote increased again with the Scottish Conservative & Unionist Party attracting 29.6% of the votes (+10.1% increase vs. the previous General Election).

We are always looking for more support; if you would like to help us knock on doors, deliver leaflets or donate towards the Association you can do so by using the tabs above.  Even if you don't want to be out on the doorstep there are lots of other ways to be involved, including supporting our Events.

With your help we can win more votes and increase Conservative representation across East Lothian.
