Do you know who to vote for? No, seriously – do you really know who to vote for?
Most of us have seen enough of politics over the last few years to have pretty strong feelings about who to back.
But sometimes that means on December 12, when you walk into that polling station, you might not actually know everything your party stands for.
Instead, perhaps you’ll be going on your gut instinct. There’s not necessarily anything wrong with this, of course. Or – and there’s nothing wrong with this either – you just won’t know who to vote for at all.
Either way, if you’re stuck, floating or just want to know more about your party, you can’t start at a better place than the manifesto policies.

The problem is that manifestos run to scores of pages long, and you’d have to be pretty obsessed to read them all.
That’s where we come in. We on the Mirror Politics team have had to sift through them all – and compare where the big parties stand on not just the key issues of the day, but the detailed ideas that’d affect you.
We’ve build a bumper personality quiz that will suggest, as a rough approximation, who you should vote for.
Just take yourself through 27 questions picking your favourite policies to find out which party they most resemble.
Who knows? You might find out something new about yourself.

How did we put the quiz together?
Unfortunately we couldn’t include Plaid Cymru or the SNP , because the nationalist parties create too much of an unknown quantity in a nationwide quiz where not all the parties are available to everyone.
We realise that means it’s not perfect, and is aimed mostly at voters in England. But you can read summaries of the Plaid and SNP manifestos below to learn more.
Should I follow what the quiz says?
Maybe. But not necessarily!
Think of this quiz more as a light-hearted game to analyse which policies match up to which party the most.
Even with 27 questions it’s only a snapshot, and there’s a lot more to political parties than what’s in their manifestos.
There’s also their leadership, for example, their chance of winning in your seat or ‘tactical voting’, or how strongly you feel about perhaps one or two key issues that can override all the others.
But we hope you’ll share this quiz with your friends as an entertaining, educational way to prepare for polling day.
