strategic voting

As per Wikipedia, strategic voting(external link) occurs when a voter misrepresents his or her sincere preferences in order to gain a more favorable outcome.

According to Gregory D. Morrow et al.(external link), strategic voting, is only valid if the following conditions are met:

1. It must be a close 2-way race (i.e. the two other parties must be within 5%)
2. The chances of your party winning riding are remote (i.e. support < 25%)
3. Small number of votes will make a difference (i.e. < 1 in 3 voters).

If you wish to find out whether, your riding matters under these conditions visit this link(external link). You might wish to locate your riding(external link) or to review the latest opinion poll(external link).
