Voter Power Index

Find out how powerful your vote is compared to the UK average

One Person, One Vote.
But are all votes equal?

In the 2010 election, more than half of all voters voted against their winning MP.

Their votes simply didn't count.

In the UK, the only voters with any real power to choose the government are those who live in marginal constituencies.

Indeed, voters in the most powerful 10% of constituencies will wield more than 30 times as much power as the least influential.

The rest of us have little or no power to influence the outcome of the election.

In fact, statistical analysis by the NEF (the new economics foundation) shows that one person in the UK does not have one vote...'s more like 0.30 votes.

In some ultra safe constituencies the value of your vote falls to practically zero.
