Tactical Voting 2019

In this General Election, the SNP will use every vote it receives to argue for another divisive referendum on leaving the UK.

Since the election was called, Scotland in Union has received many requests from supporters for advice on who to vote for to stop the SNP.


So, if your priority in this election is to stop the SNP, then this guide will suggest which party you should vote for in your constituency. Just enter your postcode below to view the results.


The polls show that barely a quarter of people in Scotland want a second referendum next year, but Nicola Sturgeon refuses to listen.


The more seats the Nationalists gain in the House of Commons, the louder they will shout about breaking up the UK. Their voice is negative, inward-looking and divisive, and they do not speak for the majority of people in Scotland.


Most voters do not want their ballot paper at this election to be used to divide communities, friends and families with another referendum on Scexit.

Our voting suggestions do not constitute an endorsement of any candidate or party’s policies.  Scotland in Union has based the suggestion in each seat on a number of factors, including the result in the 2017 General Election, polling results since then, odds, and local information.  In some seats the choice will be more obvious than in others, but we have done our best to make a fair suggestion in every case.  If new information comes to light in the short time before the election that would change any choice, we will update the relevant constituency. 


We understand that many of you will want to stop the SNP, but also have a strong loyalty to another party that is unlikely to win in your seat. If this is the case for you, please consider using Swap My Vote.  This means you can be paired with someone in another constituency in Scotland, or across the UK, who will vote for your party in a constituency where it could help them win.


The experts agree that tactical voting could be decisive in this election. We hope this guide will help you decide how to vote on Thursday, December 12th.
