|Current National Assembly for Wales constituency|
Monmouth is a constituency of the National Assembly for Wales. It elects one Assembly Member (AM) by the first past the post method of election. Also, however, it is one of eight constituencies in the South Wales East electoral region, which elects four additional members, in addition to eight constituency members, to produce a degree of proportional representation for the region as a whole.
The constituency was created for the first election to the Assembly, in 1999, with the name and boundaries of the Monmouth Westminster constituency.
In general elections for the National Assembly for Wales, each voter has two votes. The first vote may be used to vote for a candidate to become the Assembly Member for the voter's constituency, elected by the first past the post system. The second vote may be used to vote for a regional closed party list of candidates. Additional member seats are allocated from the lists by the d'Hondt method, with constituency results being taken into account in the allocation.
