Vote Labour

Why vote Labour in Blackpool South?

Blackpool South was Conservative until Labour won in 1997. The Conservatives reclaimed it in 2019, but the MP resigned after a misconduct suspension. Labour won it back in a 2024 by-election. The latest polling shows Labour narrowly ahead, with a surging Reform UK taking second place from the Conservatives. This increase in the Reform UK vote share makes the outcome more uncertain, and tactical voting could be critical here.
