Tactical Voting: How should I vote in the European elections in Scotland?
- 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 Glasgow, the Highlands and Islands, the Lothians, Fife, Strathclyde and beyond.
There are six seats in Scotland.
According to the tactical voting guide, Remain Voter, the Scottish Nationalist Party looks secure in the region, but it could increase its hold if undecided voters back the Lib Dems. It therefore recommends voting Lib Dem to stop Nigel Farage.
Remain United, on the other hand, suggests voting SNP as the strongest Remain party.
Polling by Best for Britain suggests the SNP is the strongest party for stopping Brexit. It adds that non-nationalists should support the Lib Dems.

The New European does not back one party in the fight against Brexit - it instead encourages you to vote for any of the main anti-Brexit parties - including the Lib Dems, the Greens, Change UK, or the SNP and Plaid Cymru in Scotland and Wales.
James Ball explains here why we are not advocating the Labour Party at the European elections.
