With the general election expected to be called within days, is conducting its latest in a series of regular polls taking the political pulse of the LGBT community.

With just days to go until the closest what is expected to be the closest election in decades begins we’re testing the pulse of the LGBT community. Simply fill in the form below before 12pm on Sunday 4th April 2010.

Our last poll of more than a thousand readers found that 28 per cent said they would vote Labour if a general election was held tomorrow, with the Tories and the Lib Dems following on 25 per cent each. The Greens came fourth with 19 per cent.

It also found that readers who were too young to vote five years ago were most likely to vote Conservative.

These readers are not old enough to remember a Tory government, although most will have experienced Section 28, which banned the “promotion” of homosexuality in schools.

Our poll found that less than 20 per cent of readers voted Tory in the last election in 2005. However, for all readers, we found that Labour was the top choice at 28 per cent, with the Tories on 25 per cent.
