These are the twenty-three most marginal seats in Parliament, based on the results in 2010. These seats all have a majority under one per cent of those who voted.
|Camborne and Redruth||66||Conservative||Liberal Democrat|
|Oldham East||103||Labour||Liberal Democrat|
|Sheffield Central||165||Labour||Liberal Democrat|
|Oxford West||176||Conservative||Liberal Democrat|
|Dorset Mid and Poole North||269||Liberal Democrat||Conservative|

|Edinburgh South||316||Labour||Liberal Democrat|
|Lancaster and Fleetwood||333||Conservative||Labour|
|Bradford East||365||Liberal Democrat||Labour|
|Truro and Falmouth||435||Conservative||Liberal Democrat|
A movement of a mere half a per cent towards the party in second place would see these seats change hands. It will be noted that eleven of these are Conservative, whereas seven are Labour held.
A further fourteen seats have a majorities between 1% and 2%.
