Once elected, MPs work both in your area – or their constituency – dealing with local matters, and in Parliament, where they vote and help shape law, alongside 649 other MPs.

The election on 4 July will be using the new parliamentary boundaries following the Parliamentary Constituency Order 2023 – more information on these boundaries can be found by visiting Boundary Commission for England.

Anyone who is not yet registered to vote should do so by Tuesday, 18 June in order to take part in this election. You can register to vote on the gov.uk website.

Students have the option of registering at both their home and term-time addresses, they can vote only in one of their registered locations for this election.

The UK Government has introduced a requirement for voters to produce acceptable photographic identification when voting in person at a polling station. This new requirement will apply to this election.

Voters intending to vote in person are urged to ensure they have one of the acceptable forms of photo ID prior to attending their polling station. Residents without an acceptable form of ID have until 5pm on Wednesday, 26 June to apply for their Voter ID.
