Who Should I Vote For?

Who Should I Vote For?

With the UK General Election looming, everywhere I look people are talking politics. Yet politics is one of the most hated topics in the country! Why? Because it can be controversial, is dominated by people with strong views, and can be incredibly confusing to trawl through all the bullshit and get to the facts.

So with this in mind, how the hell are you supposed to work out who to vote for?

Thankfully there are a number of online resources you can use to help you make an informed decision, but again there are also some that can confuse you even more. So we’ve tested some out some of the resources out there and provided a list of the ones we found most useful;

Who Should You Vote For? – a short quiz to give you an idea of which parties’ views match yours, works well because it gives you a quick idea, and you can see how much you align with each of the parties. The great thing about this site is it also provides a quick explanation of each of the issues, so you can make a more informed choice as to where you stand on each one.

I Side With – another quiz to give you an idea of which parties’ views match yours, results are given in percentages so you can see how you compare. Unfortunately you can match quite highly with more than one party, but it’s still easier than some other quizzes as again each issue provides an explanation of what it means.

Voting Counts – a clear table showing the policies on each major issue for the top 5 parties. Useful to see how each compares clearly without having a quiz decide for you who you align with.

I’m sure there are others out there, but I found these the best for clear and concise information, and good explanations of policy issues. I find that many of these quizzes ask me what my opinion is on a matter I know nothing about, so having these snippets of information before asking you to make a decision is much more helpful than making blind choices.

Either way, be sure to have your say and cast your vote on Thursday 7th May!
