I’ve heard that there are websites out there that can help you find out how best to vote to prevent the conservatives winning the election. Can anyone direct me to one?

If you look at the yougov website and their election poll, you can search for your constituency and see what party is the main challenger to the Tories. Then if you want to vote tactically, vote for them.

Try Google?

You can look at the BBC website, put your postcode in and see in your constituency who came second in 2017 and 2015.

Then you can work out whether to vote for the first or second party.

I should have added lots of the tactical voting sites that are up have issues e.g. telling you to vote Labour when Lib Dems are the main opposition, telling you to vote Lib Dem when Labour are the main opposition.

There are some constituencies where it is a 3 or 4 way split but if you check the candidates in your area you may find you don't have a Green or whatever candidate.

As above, there are many sites that can tell you which party came second last time (it may not be the same candidate standing this time). You really should know who your MP actually is, as well as which other candidates are standing locally. Your MP's voting record can be found here:, so you can see exactly what they have and have not voted for. You should also check on Google information about other candidates standing, in case of any nasty surprises, and you should read summaries at least of each manifesto. By all means vote tactically when you've done your research if you are happy with that, but make the decision with a modicum of general knowledge.

The tactical voting site above hasn't made a prediction yet for my area, sadly it means that it's such a Tory stronghold there's no point voting for anyone else Sad

Thanks all
Same for me Nancy75 - shame, but I’m still voting!
