Vote for what you believe in on Polling Day

With the polls pointing to a hung parliament, and a recent survey showing that over 14% of those who intend to vote have still not decided who to vote for, the Green Party is calling on people to vote for what they believe in.

Keith M Ross, Green Party candidate for Swansea West said, “Many people are saying that they will make up their mind on polling day. And it’s easy to see why some people may be having difficulty making their choice, with everyone promising them the earth in order to get their vote.”

In contrast to the Opinion Polls, the ‘Vote for Policies’ website shows Green policies still coming out well ahead of the other parties in a blind test.

Vote for Policies ( At 07:30 on Tuesday 4 May, with 230,448 votes cast, 24.98% prefer Green policies. Labour is on 19.38%; Lib Dems 18%; and Conservatives 15.98%.

Keith Ross continued, “It seems that when people are asked to vote for policies rather than for parties or personalities, then Green Party policies come out on top every time. Green policies have led the ‘Vote for Policies’ poll from the start, and with over 230,000 votes cast we are still well ahead.

With the prospect of a hung parliament looming, there’s never been a better time to vote for what you really believe in, and send a strong message to whoever ends up in government.

“A vote for the Green Party is not just a vote for the environment, important though that is. Voting Green also means voting for social justice and fairness; greater equality and protecting our public services; electoral and parliamentary reform.

“A vote for the Green Party is a vote for the future.”

    Wish I still lived in Swansea as since there is no one representing the Green Party in Neath Port Talbot I was forced to vote for a party who’s policies do not reflect my values 😦

      Sorry about that, but you will be pleased to hear that our main priorities at our next local meeting will be: 1) Selecting the South Wales West Regional List for the Assembly Elections next year; and, 2) Reviving local Green Parties across the region, including Neath.

      So you should have a Green to vote for next year, and hopefully in the future as well.
