2024 Electoral Boundary Changes

Until the General Election, Lymm remains in the Warrington South constituency, with Conservative MP Andy Carter (until Thursday 30/05/2024).

At the General Election, the Borough of Warrington wards of: Lymm North & Thelwall (polling districts SNA, SNB, SPA, SPB and SPC) and Lymm South will be part of the Tatton constituency, which has the incumbent Conservative MP Esther McVey since 2017 (when Esther McVey replaced George Osbourne).

Lymm & Thelwall wards will remain within Warrington Borough Council for Council Tax payments and provision of local services, but will be represented in Parliament by the Tatton MP.

This site has predictions for Tatton (this link takes into account the new boundaries -n.b.  please treat with caution, & likely this site will be updated e.g. show different results - as the election approaches): https://www.electoralcalculus.co.uk/fcgi-bin/calcwork23.py?seat=Tatton

Apparently the Tatton constituency has never been held by Labour.
