Five candidates have put themselves forward to be the next MP in Wells.
The Green Party and The Brexit Party have chosen not to field candidates in the constituency, which the Conservatives have held since 2015.
James Heappey will again stand for the Tories, and will face opposition from Tessa Munt who was the MP for Wells from 2010-2015 on behalf of the Liberal Democrats.
Mr Heappey is defending a majority of about 7,500 votes.
Kama McKenzie will stand for Labour in the election, who came a distant third in 2017 and fourth behind UKIP two years before.
Dave Dobbs, who stood in the Wells constituency in 2015 for The Birthday Party, is listed as an Independent candidate this time around.
