A recent poll conducted by BMG Research on behalf of the Electoral Reform Society has found that just three in ten (30%) people feel well informed about the upcoming general election.

Most people reported feeling ‘about average’ (46%), while 17% said they felt ‘poorly informed’.

Nonetheless, 59% of Brits said they would definitely vote on Thursday, with a further 12% suggesting they were very likely to vote (responses recorded on a 10-point scale).

Interestingly, one in five (20%) voters said they plan to vote tactically on Thursday, although nearly six in ten (58%) said they will vote for the candidate or political party they most prefer.

Less than half (46%) of the public said they felt their vote would count in their area, while a third (33%) said they did not think their vote would count in general and a fifth (22%) said they didn’t know.

Finally, 63% of Brits say they are interested in the UK General Election, although the over 65s recorded the highest level of interest, with nearly three-quarters (73%) saying they were interested and nearly a third (32%) saying they were ‘very interested’.

Fieldwork dates, methodology and a full breakdown of these results can be found here.
