This is another seat that has been Conservative since it was created in 1983, with Mark Prisk being the constituency's representative since 2001.
Prisk has a majority of more than 21,000 which he has steadily grown since winning the seat.
Hertford and Stortford is one of six seats in the county where UKIP aren’t standing, so Prisk’s challengers come from the Lib Dems, Labour and the Green Party candidates.
Labour’s representative Katherine Chibah stood against Prisk in 2015 as well.
