Parliament accepted the Boundary Commission's Fifth Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies which slightly altered this constituency for the 2010 general election to exclude those areas of the former county of Hereford and Worcester which are now in Worcestershire. This meant North Herefordshire being at its core a successor to Leominster constituency. The remainder of the county is covered by the Hereford and South Herefordshire seat.

The Brexit Party's former candidate stood down on 23 August 2019, but the party confirmed they would put forward a new one. Mark Smith was announced as the new Brexit Party candidate on 8 November, but stepped down following Nigel Farage's decision not to run candidates in Conservative-held seats.
