FOR the first time in nearly a century, we'll be heading to the polls for a December general election.

After four attempts to get an early election because of the Brexit deadlock, Prime Minister Boris Johnson finally got his way after Labour backed his proposals.

So that now puts polling day on December 12, with all 650 seats up for grabs again.

Currently, Kit Malthouse is the MP for North West Hampshire, and he is Crime, Policing and Fire Minister.

In 2017, he secured 62.1% of the vote, having held the seat since 2015.

Here are the candidates who have declared that they are standing for North West Hampshire in the 2019 general election:
