82515 How much for a vote?
Since parties are rattling the tins for campaign contributions - anyone got any idea of the incremental pound:vote ratio that they assume or hope for?

Figures off the top of my head but it was approximately £3 per vote last election.

Interesting, do you have any background or data on that? Like the OP, its a fascinating figure.

It varies massively between parties and constituencies, of course.

I can't remember any hard figures, but if I recall the conservatives get the worst bang for their buck. Not for any other reason than because by the nature of their core voters they are the best funded. You have to run a lot of £1 per ticket tombolas to compete with a £200 per ticket charity ball with auction.

According to research by the Electoral Reform Society, spending on a constituency level varied from 14p to £3.07 per vote at the 2010 election. Unsurprisingly, the least money was spent on safe seats. That's based on a simple calculation of votes won vs total spend; calculating the marginal cost per vote isn't really practical.

At the 2015 election, Labour spent an average of £1.29 per vote, the Tories £1.38, the SNP £1.01, UKIP 98p and the Lib Dems £1.46.

Crikey, they really didn't spend very much money at all. Given the collapse in their vote I would have expected this figure to be much higher, almost to the point where it would have been cheaper to just bribe people.

The Lib Dems usually run a very lean and cost-effective campaign based on local grass-roots activism. They spent 72p per vote in 2005 and 70p per vote in 2010, so their cost-per-vote doubled after the coalition.

You misread the article. The Greens spent 98p. UKIP spent 73p.

My apologies, I was rather drunk.

I am a very boring drunkard.
