The people of central Hatfield will choose a new politician to represent them in the town council in a hotly-contested by-election on Thursday.
With Labour control of the authority on a knife-edge after months of bitter controversy, two candidates, both living in the town, will face-off in a by-election to replace councillor Mike Alder, who died on November 10.
Bhumi Zhaveri of Chelwood Avenue is standing for Labour, opposing former borough councillor Bukky Olawoyin, who lives in Horsa Gardens, and is standing for the Conservatives.
