The BBC report that whilst party activists all over the country are getting onto doorstops to convince people to vote for them, in one small corner of Wales, all is quiet.
Gwynedd council says the ward of Bryncrug/Llanfihangel in Meirionnydd has attracted no nominations. It follows a decision by the sitting independent councillor Arwel Pierce to stand down from the authority. The council says that a by-election for the vacancy will be held some time after the elections on 3 May.
The ward covers a largely rural area on the south western edge of Snowdonia, including the villages of Bryncrug, near Tywyn, and Llanfihangel-y-Pennant in the foothills of Cadair Idris.
