Scotland, and indeed the whole of the UK, will go to the polls on June 8th for the General Election.
On April 18th, Prime Minister Theresa May called for a snap Election, just two years after David Cameron delivered a decisive victory for the Conservative Party in May 2015.
It’s the shortest period between two General Elections since 1974, and the shortest period between two General Elections called by a Conservative government in almost 100 years. We live in interesting times, and Scotland Votes covers them.
The 2015 General Election was seismic for a number of reasons; from the margin of victory of the Conservatives UK-wide, to the SNP’s incredible wins across Scotland, to the heavy losses suffered by the Liberal Democrats and Labour. The 2017 Election promises the same.
Scotland Votes offers a unique take on the election as it happens. We’ll feature opinion polls, analysis and insights from our team of Weber Shandwick experts, while giving you the chance to predict the outcome with our unique seat prediction tool.
