Vote Labour

Why vote Labour in Penistone and Stocksbridge?

Labour was ahead in the May 2024 local elections in the constituency, even though the Lib Dems have strength at local government level. When people are thinking about the national context in a general election, the centre and left vote is much more united around Labour. Latest polling shows Labour well ahead of the Conservatives in this constituency, but polls have tightened during campaigns before and been in error in some previous elections. There is some evidence that Conservative losses to Reform UK are increasing Labour’s lead and the party will try to recover this ground; Lib Dem and Green voters can counterbalance any Conservative squeeze on Reform.
