I have already voted, Labour for me. The thought of another five years of the Tories is dismal to say the least.

My prediction

Conservative: 276

Labour: 271

SNP: 48

Lib Dem: 28

DUP: 8

UKIP: 5

Sinn Fein: 5

SDLP: 3

Plaid Cymru: 3

Green: 1

Independent: 1

Speaker: 1

Respect: 0

Could be another rel-eletion in the summer if Labour and Tories don't get enough seats

I voted UKIP.

I had every intention of voting Conservative when I went to bed. But then I allowed my heart to rule my head.

I'm hoping that if enough people do the same and UKIP win a substantial % of the vote without actually winning an equal % of seats that it'll be one more step on the road to proportional representation.

Electoral reform is my end game.

Could be. Apparently there is a scenario where the queen might decide. How ridiculous is that??

An honourable choice. Unfortunately, a vote for greens in my area is as good as a vote for Tory.

How does she decide, just who she thinks would do the best job?

I live in a Con-Lab marginal, so will be voting Labour.

Suspect the final outcome will be another Con-Dem coalition tho.

SNP can't do much on their own and Labour won't work with them. A vote for SNP could result in a tory majority. Please think of the country my man.

hoping for a tory lib dem coalition again but not sure if it will have enough seats

If Labour turn their back on governing the country without any sort of deal with the SNP, it will be political suicide for them in Scotland.

I'm calling labour's bluff, and I'm not a tactical voter either

I maybe be reading this wrong. Maybe she just publicly endorses one of them:

'One way of reducing the uncertainty and speeding things up would be to hold the confidence vote at the beginning of the Queen’s Speech debate instead of at the end. In 2010 this would have meant holding the vote on 25 May, two weeks after Cameron had been appointed Prime Minister. But it would still not offer any guidance as to whom the Queen should invite to be Prime Minister if it is not clear who is likely to be able to command confidence in the new parliament. That dilemma might happen in 2015 if both major parties win roughly equal numbers of seats and the new House of Commons contains different combinations of parties with credible claims to form a new government. In that circumstance the default rule is that the incumbent Prime Minister has the right to meet the new parliament to test whether he can still command confidence, as Baldwin did in 1924.'
