Vote Match Test

With the current crisis in Westminster, you could be forgiven for not realising we are just a couple of weeks from an election. On Thursday 4 June, UK voters will have a chance to elect their representatives in the European Parliament for the next five years (some parts of the country will also be holding local elections, Cornwall for example).

Turnout for European elections is typically low and this year's is expected to be no exception. This is hardly surprising when 51% of the public claim to know 'not very much' or 'nothing at all' about politics (Audit of Political Engagement 6, Hansard Society 2009).

Vote Match is very simple: give your opinion on 30 statements, mark which ones you consider to be particularly important or unimportant, and the website calculates where you stand in relation to the parties based on their own responses to the same statements. It's totally transparent - the website doesn't just give you a match, it explains how the calculation was made.

 Random Information. 
 An Gof and Flamank were executed on 27th June 1497 and suffered the traitor's fate of being hanged, drawn and quartered at Tyburn. Audley was beheaded on the 28th June at Tower Hill. Their heads were displayed on pike-staffs ("gibbeted") on London Bridge. An Gof is recorded to have said before his execution that he should have "a name perpetual and a fame permanent and immortal". Thomas Flamank was quoted as saying "Speak the truth and only then can you be free of your chains".
