Elec­tors may vote tac­ti­cally

The Oban Times - - News -

AS AR­GYLL and Bute res­i­dents take to the polls to­day (Thurs­day), a poll has re­vealed one in five may be vot­ing tac­ti­cally.

When asked by the Elec­toral Re­form So­ci­ety whether it would be vot­ing for a can­di­date or party best po­si­tioned to keep out some­one they dis­liked, 20 per cent say they would, com­pared to 58 per cent say­ing they will be vot­ing for the can­di­date or party they most pre­fer.

It com­pares to a fig­ure of just nine per cent for a sim­i­lar ques­tion asked in the run up to the 2015 elec­tion.
