This is our tactical voting guide to keeping out SDLP candidates in the 2022 general election. This page takes the set of constituencies where SDLP candidates stood last time and divides them into three categories using the rules below.
We assume that tactical voting is only a good idea against a SDLP candidate in a particular constituency when, in the last election, they held the constituency and were no more than 25 percentage points ahead of the second placed candidate or did not win the constituency and were no more than 25 percentage points behind the winning candidate.
If a by-election has taken place after the last election then that result is used instead of the one from the last election.
In my opinion, the best way of using this guide is as follows:
Our recommendation: Vote for the parties recommended in this table. If there are two such parties, the first choice is probably the most effective.
|Northern Ireland||Vote For|
|Belfast South||1. DUP|
|2. Alliance NI|
|Down South||1. Sinn Fein|
|Foyle||1. Sinn Fein|
Our recommendation: Vote for whichever party you like.
|Fermanagh and South Tyrone|
|Newry and Armagh|
There are no such constituencies.
