Your National Assembly for Wales Election: Monmouth Constituency


We are now 63 days away from the National Assembly for Wales elections.

Make sure you’ve registered to vote, the deadline is April 18th, but it’s best to do this as soon as possible, you can do so here:

It is not my place to tell you who to vote for, but it’s important that you know the options available to you.

When it does come time to vote, you’ll have 2 ballots, as explained here. If you live in and around Abergavenny, you will receive one for Monmouth and one for South Wales East. Monmouth is your constituency vote, with the same boundaries as the General Election constituency. Today we’ll look at the candidates for this constituency.
