THE biggest shake-up in local politics could be on the cards as more than 120 candidates fight for seats on Welwyn Hatfield Council.

In a change to the norm, all 48 seats in the borough are up for grabs due to voting lines being re-drawn.

It also means voters could be marking their X at a different polling station from usual.

Voters will be asked to select two or three candidates depending on how many seats are in their ward.

There are 48 Conservative, 35 Labour, 35 Liberal Democrat, five Green and one British National Party nominees.

Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday, May 1.

*Elections are also taking place for Welwyn Parish Council and Hatfield Town Council.

However, no seats on Welwyn Parish Council have been contested, so voters are not required to vote.

Newgate Street and Wildhill ward of Hatfield Town Council is also not contested, but residents will need to vote in all other wards.
