Voters will go to the polls in Hengoed today to elect a new county councillor and a new member of Llanelli Rural Council.
This must be one of the most hotly contested local government by-elections anywhere, with six candidates standing for the county council seat. If the 2012 result is anything to go by, a few votes either way will decide it.
Labour's standard line in pretty much any election in Wales is that the result will send a message to Westminster. Of course it won't, but it will send a message to Carmarthen.
If you think Madge, Meryl and Mark are doing a great job, vote Labour for business as usual. If not, vote for Martin Davies and Susan Phillips.
Pob lwc iddyn nhw.
