If your constituency is not highlighted in purple below, it means that we believe it is likely to go PC/WR, and we recommend you vote for your first choice party. Because of our limited resources, we regret that we have been able to target only certain constituencies in this election. We are focusing on those key constituencies (highlighted in purple) where past voting results -- 2008, 2004, or before --- have shown significant support for progressive parties. However, we welcome your updates regarding all constituencies and candidates on our blog website at Please post them under "Constituencies - Have your say!" Thank you.
