Racist party Britain First urged its supporters yesterday to vote for Ukip candidate Mark Reckless in the Rochester and Strood by-election.
In a polling day post on its Facebook page, the far-right group ordered fellow racists to "vote Ukip today."
The post went on to explain that Mr Reckless had the best chance of winning the election for the right and claimed credit for his expected victory.
Britain First activists attempted to stage a second divisive march through Rochester on Saturday - but were faced down by some 300 local people.
Mr Reckless won enthusiastic support from the street gang just a day after declaring that immigrant workers could be deported if Britain left the EU.
Despite the nasty words, opinion polls predicted that the Tory defector was set to inflict further pain on his former party by romping home in the seat.
A Survation poll for the Unite union put him on 48 per cent - ahead of the Tories on 33 per cent and Labour on 16 per cent.
The Lib Dems were polling at 1 per cent and look set to lose their deposit for the 11th time at a by-election in this Parliament.
Meanwhile, shadow attorney general Emily Thornberry sparked a class war while campaigning in the constituency for Labour candidate Naushabah Khan.
Ms Thornberry was accused of snobbery after she posted an image of a white van parked outside a house with England flags hanging from the windows.
A caption said simply: "An image from Rochester."
