Grassroots campaigning is an integral part of modern electioneering and is increasingly integrated into national party strategies. A considerable body of research has built up over the years demonstrating that well-directed local campaigns do pay electoral dividends. Less attention has been given, however, to how such local activities are resourced. Recent changes to the rules on public disclosure of details of party finance in the UK afford an opportunity to address this lacuna. The chapter sets the general scene and outlines the contents of later chapters.
