How people vote in closely fought constituencies like here in St Neots and Mid Cambridgeshire will decide the result of the upcoming General Election.

In the latest council elections across this new constituency, it was neck and neck between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats. Just a handful of votes could decide which of them wins this time.

Every vote will make a difference between a Conservative or Lib Dem win here.

Labour can't beat the Tories here.

Lib Dem or Conservative here

There are two choices. Either we will get a Conservative MP - and the out of touch government will continue to take our part of Cambridgeshire for granted, or we will get a Lib Dem MP in Ian Sollom and St Neots and Mid Cambridgeshire will have helped bring down this government.

Official analysis shows that the Lib Dems would have come a clear second in 2019. Last time Lib Dem candidate Ian Sollom took on Conservative MP Anthony Browne, there were just 2,904 votes between them, and Labour were in a distant third.

A Labour vote will help the Conservatives win

A vote for third-place Labour here risks letting the Conservative MP sneak a win and help this government cling to power.

The St Neots and Mid Cambridgeshire constituency covers a significant part of rural Cambridgeshire. As well as St Neots itself, the towns of Cambourne and Northtstowe, and new developments on the edge of Cambridge. Across this area, the Lib Dems hold twenty council seats, more than any other party. The Conservatives have nine councillors. Labour have none.

Labour have not won a single local councillor in this new constituency in the last 5 years. They just can't beat the Conservatives here.
