Boundaries in Richmond
The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames is divided by the river Thames into two constituencies, Twickenham and Richmond Park. Richmond Park also takes in some parts of Kingston. These constituencies are represented by two Members of Parliament elected in General Elections. Information about our MPs can be found on the Parliament information page.
The Borough is divided into 18 wards, each represented by three local councillors. These councillors are elected every four years in Local Elections. See our Who are my councillors page for a complete list of councillors and their details.
To find out your current electoral areas and normal polling station, please see My Richmond. Please check your poll card at each election as sometimes alternative premises have to be used.
