Several polls are currently predicting Labour victories in key Nottinghamshire seats at the next general election. Voters are heading to the polls on July 4 to pick the MP who should represent them in the House of Commons and, despite the number of Labour victories predicted, the race looks incredibly tight in some places.

One poll puts Labour just one point ahead of the Conservatives in Mansfield and the party is just three points ahead of the Tories in Sherwood Forest, according to another poll. Although the Conservatives are predicted to hold on to their stronghold of Newark, every other one of Nottinghamshire's 11 seats is expected to go to Labour.

Below is how the race is looking in six key Nottinghamshire seats, with polls from Electoral Calculus, The Economist and YouGov used. The first two polls were updated on May 21 and May 23 respectively, whilst YouGov's poll was published on April 3. Only the top three parties in each poll are shown.
