Opponents may be relying on quality not quantity to dislodge all nine sitting Conservative councillors that represent Fenland on Cambridgeshire County Council.
Nomination papers released today show that across Fenland 37 candidates have put forward their names to contest the eight divisions.
That compares to 48 in 2017 when the last elections were held.
All divisions are single member wards with the exception of March North and Waldersey that has two county councillors to represent it.
Apart from the nine Conservatives seeking re-election, Labour has also put up nine candidates to oppose them.

Independents field six candidates, the Green Party also has six names on the ballot papers whilst the Liberal Democrats have five candidates.
