This is your final update before the election on 6 May.
Over 50,000 Christians have now signed the Westminster 2010 Declaration of Christian Conscience and over 7,500 have become ‘Facebook fans’ in just over four weeks since its launch on 4 April (Easter Sunday).
We know that Christian voters will be weighing candidates and parties in different ways. Here are some resources that you may find helpful.
New Resources to help you
1.If your constituency is marginal and you wish to vote tactically for the best candidate who has a chance of winning then you may find our list of ‘preferred candidates’ in 250 marginal constituencies helpful. Our blog explains the rationale for considering a vote for the ‘least bad option’ and explains gold and silver stars.
2.We now have over 800 candidates graded red or green on conscience issues listed on our candidates’ page. Search on candidate, constituency or grade and read how we did it. This information is still being regularly updated.
3.Our links page gives links to a huge range of Christian election websites and resources and another blog article tells you how to research your MP.

How you can help us
1. Pray - that Westminster 2010 will make a positive difference through encouraging ordinary Christians to take a stand, helping them to vote wisely and through making all candidates aware of the importance of the Christian vote in a close-run election where it may, by God’s grace, prove decisive.
2. Gather signatures – Please continue to encourage Christians in your churches to sign the declaration after the election. The Election has been our initial focus but the Declaration itself is more timeless and we are planning to present it to the incoming Prime Minister when the election is over. Sign up forms can be printed easily from the homepage. Send them in to Westminster 2010, 8 Marshalsea Road, London SE1 1HL and help us on the drive to 100,000 signatures!
3. Follow progress – Keep up via the website, become a fan on our Facebook page, join our Twitter feed or read our Blog.
With thanks again for your support.
Warmly in Christ Jesus
