Tactical Voting ……
Carry on reading and find out how to elect pro-Remain MPs to maintain our close ties with Europe in this most historic of elections
YOUR Vote can make a REAL Difference!
Tactical Voting also known as Strategic Voting, occurs in elections with more than two candidates, when a voter supports another candidate more strongly than his or her sincere preference, in order to prevent an undesirable outcome. In other words when it is necessary to go against lifelong beliefs and allegiances and vote for a candidate who supports your views on a particular subject, in this case Remain. However, in some instances it could be necessary to vote for a candidate when they are pro-Remain and pro-EU, whereas the candidate of your preferred party could be pro-Brexit.
You should use tactical voting to make a difference. As Gina Miller said in her launch speech for
Best for Britain
“People are worried about the future direction of this country, they believe in Parliamentary democracy and they believe, as do we, that only tactical voting in this election can ensure that Parliament plays their full part in the future of this country. Throughout the course of this General Election campaign we will be focusing on educating and empowering people to make a tactical vote and choosing MPs who will do the Best for Britain.”

The link will allow them, in 30 seconds, to determine where their vote will be most powerful, either at home or at Uni. They simply enter their home & Uni postcodes & click on “compare” to see which is their best voting option. For example, if their university constituency is a safe seat for one party but their home constituency is a contested seat between two, their vote at home will have a bigger impact for tactical voting purposes. They can use the link to register to vote and to vote tactically to avoid a hard Brexit. Their votes matter!
