Huntingdonshire Liberal Democrats are the local party for the whole of Huntingdonshire district.

Huntingdonshire District Council
This is run by a cross-party alliance of Liberal Democrat, Independent, Labour and Green, led by Liberal Democrat Sarah Conboy.

Cambridgeshire County Council
This is also run by a cross-party alliance, led by Liberal Democrat Lucy Nethsingha.

Huntingdonshire covers the whole of Huntingdon constituence and parts of St Neots and Mid Cambs and of North West Cambridgeshire.

Huntingdon's most famous MP was Oliver Cromwell. Between 1983 and 2001 John Major was MP, serving as Foreign Secretary, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Prime Minister 1990-1997. In 1992 John Major achieved 66% of the vote, but things have been changing. Following the elections to the European Parliament in 2019 Liberal Democrats were polling over 20% and Huntingdon was one of over 100 constituencies that the Liberal Democrats were predicted to take from the Conservatives. In the end, support for the Liberal Democrats fell as polling day approached in that year's General Election, but in Huntingdon Liberal Democrats still achieved a near-doubling of our vote.

Welcoming new councllors
In January 2023 Conservative Councillor Doug Dew, from the Heminfords and Houghton ward, chose to leave his party and join the Liberal Democrats, citing Liz Truss; crashing of the economy and describing himself as having been “left of centre of the Conservative Party but it has moved so far in the other direction, I no longer recognise it”. In our canvassing we're hearing many former Conservative voters saying the same thing. Change is in the air.

Since then, Liberal Democrats have won all three of the county and district county by elections:
Geoff Seeff: St Neots Eatons (February 2023)
Andrew Wood Yaxley and Farcett (March 2024)
James Catmur Gt Paxton (May 2024)
