Northern Ireland General Election survey- tell us how you feel about the NHS, cost of living and more

The United Kingdom is set to head for the polls on July 4 to vote in a General Election.

In Northern Ireland there are 136 candidates across 18 constituencies competing for seats in Westminster. Here at BelfastLive we put together a handy list of candidates so that you can find out who’s standing in your local area.

Sinn Féin announced at the end of May that they would not be contesting the election in four constituencies ; East Belfast, South Belfast, North Down and Lagan Valley. Meanwhile, the Alliance Party is looking to secure more MP seats in this election , with party leader Naomi Long stating that the election presented “real opportunities for growth” for the party.

Jim Allister, leader of the TUV, has dismissed suggestions that his party could weaken the Unionist position in Northern Ireland by splitting the vote in the election. The TUV, which did not run in the 2019 General Election, seeks to maximise unionist turnout as an “antidote” to calls for a border poll on the island.

Here at BelfastLive we want to hear from our readers as the General Election draws closer. We’ve put together a survey to ask the people of Northern Ireland about the issues that matter most to them when choosing who to vote for.

We also want to know how the unprecedented events of the last few years, from Brexit and NHS wait times to the rising cost of living, have affected you.
