Voters don't even know when they're going to the polls yet but try telling the politicians that. It was the Prime Minister on the campaign trail in Northamptonshire today, visiting a steel plant in Corby.
t's the latest high profile visit in the run-up to the town's by-election, which has been called after Tory MP Louise Mensch decided to step down.
It's a crucial battleground seat with only 1,500 votes separating the Conservatives and Labour at the last election.
The result - when the election is finally called - will be critical to the leadership of both parties in a constituency where the MP has always been from the party which went onto form the government.
