There are seven constituencies covering Clwyd. They are all county constituencies (CCs) of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (Westminster), and are used also for elections to the National Assembly for Wales. The current boundaries have been effective since the Welsh Assembly election, 2007 and the 2010 United Kingdom general election.
Clwyd is one of the eight preserved counties of Wales. As currently defined, the preserved county consists of the principal areas of Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham.
For Welsh Assembly elections, constituencies are grouped into additional member electoral regions, and changes to constituency boundaries mean, also, changes to regional boundaries.
1997 to 2010
The Clwyd South constituency was also partly a Powys constituency, and the Conwy and Meirionnydd Nant Conwy constituencies were also partly Gwynedd constituencies.
The seven constituencies are all in the North Wales electoral region, which also includes two Gwynedd constituencies.
1999 to 2007
