Why vote Lib Dem in Melksham and Devizes?

Melksham and Devizes is a new constituency created by boundary changes in the 2024 general election. Had it existed in 2019 it would likely have been a Conservative seat with a large majority. The latest polling shows it will be a tight contest, with voters wanting to oust the Tories split between the Lib Dems, Labour and the Greens. But Labour and the Greens are not targeting the seat, while the Lib Dems are, and the most recent data shows they are the party best-placed to defeat the Conservatives. Tactical voting could have a significant impact on the result in Melksham and Devizes, and voters should unite behind the Lib Dems to beat the Tories here.
