Elections 2024

General Election and new Parliamentary Boundaries

The date of the next UK General Election has not yet been announced.

The Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Act 2022 reinstates the prior constitutional arrangement whereby, the dissolution and calling of a new UK Parliament is a prerogative power of the monarch.

By convention, this is on the advice of the Prime Minister of the day. The maximum term of a Parliament is 5 years. Therefore, the next UK Parliamentary General Election must be held before 28 January 2025.

The next General Election will be held on new Parliamentary boundaries. Electors in the Cherwell district will vote in either the Banbury constituency or the Bicester and Woodstock constituency. Further information on the new parliamentary boundaries is available on the Boundary Commission for England website.
