Wrexham Voters: tell us which issues will decide this election

The Guardian’s Steven Morris is Reporting to the electorate to find out what matters most to the people there and he wants your help

The Guardian will be reporting from Wrexham in north Wales ahead of the General Election, as part of a series of pieces from across the country, the focus is on understanding what makes the people living there.

The Tories are hoping to make dramatic gains in Wales- traditionally a Labour Stronghold. One of the main battlegrounds in Wrexham. Labour has won here in north Wales since 1935 but at the 2017 election, the majority for lan Lucas was only 1,832.

Lucas, a pro-remainder, has stepped down and the Tories are hopeful their candidate, Sarah Atherton, a former soldier, nurse, social worker, and micro-brewery owner, can win. The constituency is for Brexit, with 59% voting leave. But the Brexit Party is standing, which could split the pro-leave vote.

We are particularly interested in hearing from traditional labor supporters who are planning to take their votes elsewhere. Perhaps you feel completely disconnected from national politics.
