Tactical Voting: How should I vote in the European elections in the East Midlands region?
- Credit: PA
With the European elections taking place on Thursday we have taken a look at the tactical voting guides to recommend the best way to vote in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Northamptonshire and most of Lincolnshire.
There are five seats in the East Midlands.
According to the tactical voting guide, Remain Voter, the Lib Dems look the securest in the region. It therefore recommends voting for the Greens to stop Nigel Farage.
Remain United, on the other hand, suggests voting for the Lib Dems as the strongest Remain party in the region.
Polling by Best for Britain also suggests the Lib Dems are the strongest party for stopping Brexit.
