Not sure who to vote for? Vote Match can help

I came across a nice little tool today over on UKTabloid and thought that those of you not sure whch way to vote may find it useful.

Vote Match, run by Unlock Democracy but led by an advisary board chaired by the former Head of the Electoral Commission, Sam Younger, is designed to help you determine your voting preference.

All parties that have at least one sitting MP or MEP, any member of a devolved Assembly or Parliament or independent MPs who are intending to restand, were sent a long list of questions and asked to provide their own responses. The only party to refuse was the Labour Party. No surprise there then!

Here's what you have to do:

Start by clicking HERE
1) Answer the statements by clicking on agree, disagree, open-minded or skip (if you want to ignore the statement entirely).
2) Select which areas of policy matter the most to you - and which ones matter the least.
3) Select which parties you would be prepared to vote for (at least three).
4) The results screen will reveal which party you agree with most, and other parties will follow in descending order. You can look at the responses from each party in more detail by clicking on their name.

No prizes for guessing which party I was matched with...
