General Election 4th July 2024

General Election - Have Your Say

The Prime Minister has announced that the next general election will take place on 4 July 2024.              

A general election is an opportunity for people in every part of the UK to choose their MP. This person will represent a local area (constituency) in the House of Commons for up to five years. There is a choice of several candidates in each constituency. Some will be the local candidates for national political parties. The candidate that receives most votes becomes their MP.

You can register to vote by post or attend a polling station (more information below). 

Who are the candidates in my constituency?

Information about candidates in each constituency was collected online by the independent website, 'Who Can I Vote For?':
