STARTING today, the Examiner takes a daily in-depth look at our six wards in next week's General Election.
We start with Dewsbury - one ward which is guaranteed to have a new MP.
Veteran MP Mrs Ann Taylor, 57, announced 18 months ago that she intended to stand down to spend more time with her family.
And it means a new Labour candidate for the seat which has been a Labour stronghold for many years.
Mrs Taylor won the seat for the first time in 1987 and retained it in 2001 with a huge majority.
But the seat will also be in the spotlight because of the British National Party involvment.
Their candidate, David Exley, won a seat on Kirklees Council as the BNP gained support in the area.
Now he hopes to garner support in the national election.
See our panel for the results of the last three General Elections - though the constituency boundary has changed since 1992 so the picture is not truly like-for-like.
Turnout at the last election in 2001 was 58.79% and Mrs Taylor won with a majority of 7,449.
The big move to postal voting is expected to see the turnout figure rise.
The candidates are:
David Exley (British National Party)
Alan Girvan (Independent), Kingsley Hill (Liberal Democrats), Shahid Malik (Labour Party), Brenda Smithson (Green Party), Sayeeda Warsi (Conservative Party).
