With voter registration closing at the end of today, 18 June, many are still in the dark about what candidates they will see at the ballot stations on polling day.

Those who are registered will cast their vote for the 2024 UK General Election on 4 July – two-and-a-half weeks away.

But who they can vote for will depend on what constituency they are in, which may have changed since previous elections.

Most readers will choose between candidates running for the Twickenham seat.

However, the constituency shrunk by 8.2 per cent in June 2023 after England's Boundary Commision made a number of changes to constituencies across the country.

The changes are found in the north-west of the constituency, with voters in Whitton now finding themselves within the new Brentford and Isleworth seat.

Voters in doubt of their new constituency are able to check using the postcode they used when they registered to vote on the UK Parliament website here.
