There's less than two weeks to go until the General Election and if like me, you still haven’t made up your mind which way to vote, why not take a look at the following web sites to help sway your decision?
Try these web sites to help you decide how to vote
Who Should You Vote For, Vote for Policies and Vote Match all give you ways of finding out which of the political parties really share your views or which have declared an intention, if elected, to do the things you want from the next government.
Who Should You Vote For, for example, makes statements such as:
“National testing for 10 and 11 year olds should be abolished”
“Being perceived to be upper class is NOT a barrier to being a good Prime Minister”
Then, depending on whether you agree or disagree, matches you with a party that agrees or disagrees as well.
On Vote for Policies, you can select four areas that you’re particularly interested in, or all areas if you can't decide, and the web site builds a survey to suit you using excerpts of policy manifestos from the main political parties.
On Vote Match, you enter your post code (or click on England) and are given a series of statements with which to agree or disagree.
So why not give one of them a try? Spend a few minutes trying one of the sites and let us know if you got a result you were happy with, or if the result you get is unexpected!
