#GE2015: 100,000+ Vote for Policies in 18 hours as UK goes to the polls

227

Just as there was a last minute surge in voter registration there has been a surge in people using Vote for Policies.  As Britain goes to the polls to vote, over 100,000 people have used the Vote for Policies to match their views with party policies.

At 6pm yesterday we released the people’s manifesto drawing together the most popular policies by policy area. Labour dominated the national and Welsh result, with the Greens ahead in Scotland and UUP in Northern Ireland.

Since publishing the manifesto yesterday a further 100,000 people have taken the survey, 4,000 more in Scotland and 500 in Northern Ireland. But the manifesto policies remain the most widely held views of those completing the survey.

Since yesterday the Lib Dems have swapped places with the Greens to be the second party by the narrowest of margins.
