Seven candidates are vying to become Wrexham’s next Member of Parliament in the upcoming General Election.

Voters will head to the polls on July 4 in the first UK-wide election since December 2019.

Seven candidates have put themselves forward for your vote. These are:

  • Paul Ashton: Abolish the Welsh Assembly
  • Sarah Atherton: Welsh Conservatives
  • Charles Dodman: Reform UK
  • Becca Martin: Plaid Cymru
  • Tim Morgan: The Green Party
  • Andrew Ranger: Welsh Labour
  • Tim Sly: Welsh Liberal Democrats

The upcoming General Election on Thursday July 4 will be the first fought under new constituency boundaries and a reduced number of Welsh Members of Parliament.

The changes were finalised and announced by the Boundary Commission in June 2023 after a several year review into the electoral map.

It will see a reduction from 40 parliamentary constituencies to 32, with each containing between 69,724 and 77,062 electors.
