Newcastle-under-Lyme borough election Results 2019

What is a general election?

A parliamentary general election is when Parliament is dissolved and every seat in the House of Commons becomes vacant and a general election is held. Each constituency in the UK elects one Member of Parliament (MP) to a seat in the House of Commons. Usually the political party that wins the most seats in the House of Commons forms the Government.

Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council has one constituency within the area; we also have cross boundary areas where other neighbouring local authorities will take on certain wards which will become part of their constituency.

Please see list below of wards and constituencies for cross boundary areas:

Stoke-on-Trent North Constituency

Newchapel and Mow Cop (part of)
Talke and Butt Lane
