Vote Labour

Why vote Labour in Wellingborough and Rushden?

Wellingborough and Rushden is a new name but the seat is basically the previous Wellingborough, with the addition of Irthlingborough but with less of a rural area than before. Polling shows that Wellingborough and Rushden is potentially a close contest between Labour and Conservatives; Labour held a very narrow lead in the previous poll but have pulled away in the latest survey. Part of the reason for this Labour advantage is the loss of Conservative votes to Reform UK, which may be reversed. Furthermore, polls have tightened during campaigns before and been in error in some previous elections, so voters cannot be entirely confident about Labour’s lead here. It is not a target seat for any other party and Lib Dem and Green supporters would cast the most effective anti-Tory vote by choosing Labour.
