Place your guesses now – the LDV General Election prediction competition

by Stephen Tall on May 5, 2010

With just over 12 hours until polls open, it’s time to launch the LDV election prediction competition to our readers: enough of the speculating it’s time to pin your colours to the mast. What do you think will happen in the 2010 general election on 6th May?

All you have to do to be crowned LDV’s 2010 soothsayer is give your answers to the following four questions:

    1. What will be the shares of the popular UK vote recorded by the three main parties in the general election?

    2. How many Lib Dem MPs will be elected?

    3. Who will be Prime Minister at 5pm on Friday, 7th May?

    4. What will the percentage turnout be?

Feel free to show your working in the comments thread, but please do mark your answers clearly as per my example prediction in the first comment.

We will be using the figures from the BBC website. In the event of any dispute, the LDV editorial collective’s verdict will be final!

Best of luck to all …

NB: any candidates/agents/et al wanting to join in but not wanting publicly to publish a prediction, you do not have to give your real name (in fact we recommend you don’t if you think it might be used against you!) – but please do provide a valid email address. This will not be published, but no entry without a valid email address will be eligible to win.
