DON'T WASTE YOUR VOTE; If you want to halt a landslide Tory win, use our guide to tactical voting.

Byline: JASON BEATTIE and OLIVER MILNE

IF you want to block Theresa May from returning to power with a hefty majority, a tactical vote may be your best option.

We are urging Labour and Liberal Democrat supporters in key marginal seats to defy their political instincts and use their vote to stop the Tories winning by a landslide.

If your party of choice is highly unlikely to win in your constituency, it may be wiser to vote for one that is better placed to stop the Tories. Lib Dem leader Tim Farron yesterday urged Labour supporters to lend him a vote to help defeat Mrs May's party. He said: "There are dozens of seats across the country where the only candidate that can beat the Conservative is a Liberal Democrat.

"If you live in one of those places, I need you to lend me your vote."

Use our guide to see if your constituency is a marginal seat and to find out how best to vote.
