New Parliamentary constituencies

Constituency boundaries are reviewed periodically to make sure that constituencies are all roughly a similar size and respect local ties between areas.

New Parliamentary constituency boundaries come into effect at the UK Parliamentary general election taking place on Thursday 4 July.

Hackney will consist of four Parliamentary constituencies:

  • Hackney North and Stoke Newington (wholly within the London Borough of Hackney)
  • Hackney South and Shoreditch (wholly within the London Borough of Hackney)
  • Islington South and Finsbury – the ward in this constituency is De Beauvoir (cross-boundary with the London Borough of Islington)
  • Tottenham – the wards in this constituency are Woodberry Down and Brownswood (cross-boundary with the London Borough of Haringey)

The following changes have also been made:

  • King’s Park ward is now in the Hackney North and Stoke Newington constituency
  • Dalston ward is now in the Hackney South and Shoreditch constituency

Your poll card will tell you which Parliamentary constituency you are registered to vote in.

For more information about the Parliamentary boundary changes, visit Boundary Commission for England.

Register to vote

Register to vote

Remember, registering with the council for services and paying Council Tax will not automatically enrol you on the electoral register.

If you are unsure whether you’re registered, you can check by calling 0208 356 3232 or emailing electoralservices@hackney.gov.uk.

Voting in a polling station

Polling stations open at 7am and close at 10pm.

If you arrive at the polling station before 10pm and are still waiting to vote at 10pm, you can still cast your vote.

You are not allowed to take any photographs in polling stations.

Postal voting

Register for a postal vote

If we receive your postal application by 4 June, we will send your postal vote pack to you from Monday, 17 June 2024.

If we receive your application after 4 June, we will send your postal vote pack to you from Wednesday, 26 June 2024.

If you are a postal voter, we must receive your completed postal vote pack by 10pm on polling day, Thursday 4 July 2024.

Ensure you post your postal vote in enough time so Royal Mail can deliver it.

If you’ve applied to vote by post, you cannot vote in person at the polling station. However, on polling day you can return your postal vote to a polling station in Hackney before 10pm.

A change in the law takes effect from this election for postal votes handed in, in person, to Hackney Town Hall or any Polling Station.

If you return your postal vote in person to Hackney Town Hall or at a polling station, you are now required to fill out a new government issued form at that location before the Postal Vote can be accepted.

If you don’t fully complete the form, your postal votes won’t count. The change in the law all limits the number of postal votes you can hand in to your own plus five others. We advise, where possible, to return your Postal Vote via Royal Mail in advance of polling day.
