Tactical voting


Our tactical voting recommendation in Salisbury:
Vote Labour

Why vote Labour in Salisbury?

Salisbury has been a Conservative-held constituency since 1924, but the latest polling shows the Tory lead narrowing with Labour taking the seat by less than one percentage point. Under new boundaries for the 2024 election, the makeup of the constituency has changed - losing Amesbury and the Till Valley to the new constituency of East Wiltshire, and adding Tisbury and the Nadder Valley from South West Wiltshire. Tactical voting guidance is tricky here. The Lib Dems narrowly took second place to the Tories by just 869 votes in the 2019 general election, and while the local Wiltshire Council is Conservative-led, the Lib Dems have more seats than Labour. Nevertheless, local elections do not translate directly into general elections. For Salisbury, our tactical vote recommendation follows our three most recent MRP polls, where Labour have led the Liberal Democrats by at least 6 percentage points.
