Here's how to vote if you want to keep the Tories out

With a snap general election called – weeks after PM Theresa May said there definitely, definitely wouldn’t be a snap general election called – the internet is already predictably buzzing with polls, predictions and quite a few Facebook friends unfollowed.

And many posts are concerned about one thing and one thing only – how to get rid of that pesky Tory majority. Though many are loyal to one party, others are willing to vote tactically to keep the Tories out of government (or their majority at least below three figures), especially in marginal seats. The infographic – which you can see in full here (it’s also below) – is now being shared by those hoping to make a difference in such marginal seats. 

In marginal seats, the infographic suggests switching from Labour to Lib Dem in the following seats:

  • Bath
  • Berwick-upon-Tweed
  • Brecon and Radnorshire
  • Cheadle
  • Colchester 
  • Eastbourne
  • Hazel Grove
  • Kingston and Surbiton
  • Lewes
  • Portsmouth South
  • St Ives
  • Sutton and Cheam
  • Thornberry and Yate
  • Torbay
  • Twickenham

And from Lib Dem to Labour in these:

  • Bolton West
  • Derby North
  • Gower
  • Morley and Outwood
  • Plymouth Moor View
  • Vale of Clywd

And if you’ve not registered to vote yet, you still have until Monday, May 22nd – do it here
