Tactical voting

Orkney and Shetland

Our tactical voting recommendation in Orkney and Shetland:
Vote with your heart

Why vote with your heart in Orkney and Shetland?

Tactical voting isn’t necessary in all seats, and we want as many people to be able to vote for the party they think represents their values at this election. We haven’t made a recommendation here because the incumbent MP is polling at over 15% ahead of any other party, though it is possible that part of that margin may have happened due to the level of tactical voting at the last election and voters already deciding to vote tactically at this election. Please take this into account when casting your vote.
