Vote Swap

The only way to make your vote count in Lewes, if you are not Tory or Lib-Dem, is to swap with someone in another constituency where your choice counts.
Labour and Green voters can only make a pointless protest in Lewes, so why bother? Make your vote work for you.

An unethical idea of manipulating votes and one has absolutely no idea, or proof that it would work. It is like the final round in that awful 'Goldenballs ' programme. Tactical voting is Ok, it is one's own choice, but this? Think it through. I am not convinced it is lawful, especially if promoted by someone in a political party. For Lewes, Vote Swap also provides inaccurate advice about what the Labour vote could be. The truth is no one knows. It could be that thousands of Labour voters were tactically voting for Norman Baker. I appreciate that it is in the Lib Dem's/Tory interest to promote the idea of keeping the Labour vote low, and swapping, but I won't be swapping. I will be joining all the other ex-tactical Labour voters, and finding out how many of us there are. I note many more Labour posters than I have ever seen before. Labour may not win in Lewes, but until we stop being told by other parties how to vote, Labour will never have a chance.

It is interesting to see that Brighton Kemptown and Hove as well as Hastings are likely to be Labour wins. This makes East Sussex quite a bit more diverse than the rest of the SE. If you factor in Lewes and Eastbourne staying Liberal that is.

I have a better idea. Tactically vote Tory or UKIP to keep Labour or the Greens out.

As regular Forum users know, the best advice is generally the direct opposite of that offered by Sussex Jim. So come on all you Labour supporters in Lewes - Let's all vote Labour. We might be surprised by what we can achieve.

Jim. I appreciate you don't want Labour or the Greens . They don't seem that great to me either. But you realise that you just suggested people intentionally vote for a racist, homophobic bunch of nastiness that can't even string a sentence together on a leaflet. I am very disappointed in you.
