How To Vote on 1 May

Muddled in the mind about who you're going to vote for in the upcoming Mayoral elections? The Vote Match website will help you out. You're asked to agree or disagree with 25 statements, and then indicate the issues that matter most to you.

Vote Match compares your answers to those of the main candidates and presents you with a ranked list of who you might like to vote for.

It has some inevitable holes - you might be more concerned about a local issue than one of the 25 big questions; or you might not give a tinker's cuss about policy, voting instead for personality, hair cut, or fondness for newts.

But anyone looking to tunnel beneath the spin, sparkle and spats should check out this site. We decided who to vote for a while ago - this site didn't change our mind, but confirmed it.
