Tactical voting


Our tactical voting recommendation in Cheltenham:
Vote Lib Dem

Why vote Lib Dem in Cheltenham?

Cheltenham was held by the Lib Dems between 1992 and 2015, when it was gained by the Conservatives; but the Tory majority has always been small, even at the 2019 election. The Lib Dems have dominated local elections in Cheltenham and latest polling has them ahead of the Conservatives, with Labour in third place. Cheltenham is not a Labour or Green target seat, and more voters than average are prepared to vote tactically here.
