Today, we go to the polls. The campaign trail is over, leaflets have been reduced to cinders on the log fire, the closest winter election in living memory is drawing to a close – it is time to name Hertfordshire County Council’s next gritter.

In a competition launched by the Herts Advertiser last week, we gave you the chance to christen our new gritter. We have been inundated with winning entries - from Gritney Houston, to Usain Salt, to Gritty McGritface - with our readers demonstrating what can only be described as True Wit.

But ultimately, we have had to narrow down your suggestions into a shortlist of three names - and it is now time to vote for the Herts Ad's winning gritter.

This is a once-in-a-generation decision (until next year's competition). This will shape the future of the country for decades to come (gritters aren't generally used beyond February). Vote for your favourite now!

Our poll closes at midday on Thursday, December 5.
