The interesting thing about the election in the South Yorkshire this year is that it could be, well, interesting.
It's not usually an area that attracts much media attention.
When Nick Clegg (pictured below) lost his Lib Dem seat in Sheffield Hallam to Labour in 2017 it was the biggest shake-up to the electoral landscape for two decades - when the Lib Dems first won the seat from the Tories in 1997.
But, this year it's different.
Labour's been losing its grip on its traditional heartlands.
In Penistone and Stocksbridge, where the MP Angela Smith jumped to Change UK and then the Lib Dems, the Tories are now ready to pounce.
In the former mining areas of Rother Valley and Don Valley, which voted overwhelmingly for Brexit, Labour’s once huge majority is now reduced to a few thousand.
The unthinkable has started to happen, ex-miners and lifelong Labour supporters have been prepared to put their cross in a Conservative box.
But there's now a new(ish) kid on the block - The Brexit Party with Nigel Farage at the helm.
Seen as a straight-talking man of the people, he’s popular among South Yorkshire’s working classes and his party is seen, by many, as a more palatable alternative to the Tories.
So the critical question is: where will the Brexit voters turn? Will the Farage effect be enough to gain seats in places like Barnsley? Or could it split the vote, and actually do Labour a favour?
