StopTheTories.Vote - the country's biggest tactical voting project

"Welcome to the tactical voting election, where a record number of people are set to vote for their second — or even third — choice." - The Times

( We're also the team behind Swap My Vote )

STEP 1. Put the Tories into 3rd place, and end their party for good

This level of coordination makes 1997 look like a warm-up.

45% of voters planning to vote tactically - Good Morning Britain
13 Million people willing to lend their votes - Best For Britain

BUT we need to reach them.

Our research shows that if 22% of voters vote tactically, the Lib Dems would be the opposition - that would change the game.

NEW - Browse our interactive map to see how different levels of tactical voting effect the GE result


NEW - Tell your candidates why you're voting tactically, and what your priorties are, just put your postcode in and pick your priority



STEP 2. After the election, we stick together to lobby the next government for Proportional Representation and the country's real priorities.

Anti-Tory voters show up EVERY time, but go ignored and forgotten. So the movement will shift it's focus toward pressuring Labour to be bold. Our votes are power, and we'll use them for change again in 2029.

We need to force Labour to ignore the false narrative of the right wing media and think tanks, and listen to the voters instead.

Join us? You're in good company.


Scaling up our local elections 2023 reach 

Almost 500k people looked up how to vote.

1063 Tory councillors lost their seats.

This demonstrates unprecedented appetite for change, and the tools to empower it.

The story

In terms of candidates, there are thousands more than at a general election. Trying to work out who people should vote for is HARD!

Our small team of volunteers attempted it, and we hoped we would deliver something that people were crying out for.

The initial £5k funding helped us:

  • Pay for the postcode search service from the excellent Democracy Club (go support them too!)
  • Pay for our website hosting costs

Once we reached that target we extended the target to fund:

  • making it even better for the most important general election of our lifetime
  • make sure our data is even more accurate
  • reach more people who are looking for a way out of the mess our country is in
  • develop campaigns with our growing community of Movement Forward supporters

We're up against billionaires, but there are more of us!

Cost of living

This is a really hard time to ask for money.

Our primary goal is that people use our tools to help them in the democratic process.

So please please, only support us financially if you're able.

This is the start, help us build the rest.

We can’t compete just doing this on evenings and weekends.

Power a movement. Own our future.
