Mid Ulster has a younger population profile compared to Northern Ireland as a whole.
And that factor could potentially have an impact on the outcome if there is any move away from the largest parties in the last two Assemblies among young voters.
The constituency has long been a Sinn Fein stronghold.
Returning candidates Ian Milne, Linda Dillon and of course, the party’s new Northern leader, Michelle O’Neill were all elected on the first count of the last election 10 months ago.
O’Neill’s performance since, hitting the ground running since replacing Martin McGuinness just three weeks ago, should prove able to lift all Sinn Fein boats even further.
But the reduction of seats in each constituency from six to five is a bigger problem for the large parties than others and it is Sinn Fein which could prove the loser in the former stronghold of Mr McGuinness.
Transfers and perhaps some tactical voting appear likely to see SDLP veteran Patsy McGlone — who comes close to a full quota on his own — safely home again.
And on the unionist side the DUP’s Keith Buchanan and Ulster Unionist Sandra Overend are also likely to retain their seats with a quota apiece and strong transfers.
