However, some schools will remain open as voting will take place in a separate building or mobile polling station.

Mansfield will see an interesting fight between five candidates as it had one of the highest Leave percentages in the country at the 2016 referendum, with 70.9 percent voting for Brexit.

While the Conservatives may see the upper hand this time around, Labour candidate Sonya Ward will be hoping to overturn the 1,057 majority won by Conservative Ben Bradley in the 2017 election.
