The Borough of Slough covers two parliamentary constituencies – the whole of the Slough Constituency and part of the Windsor Constituency – meaning residents in different parts of the borough voting for a different slate of candidates depending on which constituency they are in.

The council wards within the Windsor Constituency are:

  • Colnbrook (whole)
  • Langley Foxborough (whole)
  • Langley Marish (part)
  • Langley St Mary’s (very small part)

All other areas of the borough are in the Slough Constituency.

Residents are encouraged to read their poll card when it arrives, so they are aware of which constituency they are voting in.

This election is administered by Slough Borough Council locally, however it is not a borough election which affects the make-up of the council; it is only to choose an MP to represent Slough in Parliament.

Slough Borough Council will be publicising voting, election considerations, candidates and count arrangements for the Slough Constituency only.

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead are responsible for the arrangements for the Windsor Constituency.
