Your guide to the 2010 election

Have you decided who you’re voting for on May 6th? With the debates between Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg being televised, the race is just heating up. The party that gets into 10 Downing Street could have a big impact on your life. They could make decisions that affect your child’s education, how much money is in your family budget and what health care is available to you for free.

If you’re not sure who to vote for yet, or you want to know more about the party you’re supporting, our guide to Labour, Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and the Green Party will help.
