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.

West Northamptonshire Council has four Parliamentary Constituencies, Daventry, Northampton North, Northampton South and South Northamptonshire.

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.
