Tomorrow is polling day in Camborne North following the resignation of Conservative Councillor Bill Jenkin who was arrested on sexual assault charges. This afternoon I've been in the ward delivering leaflets for the excellent Lib Dem candidate Anna Pascoe.
The by-election is only the second in Cornwall Council's short history and the first since the massive service cuts were announced by the Conservative led administration. It will therefore be seen by some as a judgment on the course of action that the administration has chosen to save money.
Although there are six candidates in total, my bet is that it will come down to just Anna or the Conservative. Whilst there were others who got a fair few votes in 2009, the general election last year was decided by just 66 votes in that area. The Lib Dems - in second place last time - look like the only serious challengers to the Conservatives.
Of course, it wouldn't be a by-election if there weren't a few slightly dubious tactics. As I arrived for my delivery round in the splendid Tehidy Park area, a Conservative deliverer tried to pretend that she was a Lib Dem who had already done the area and that I should therefore not bother. Fortunately, I knew different.
