Wallasey was once a Conservative strong hold but for the last 32 years it has returned a Labour MP to Parliament.

The constituency is one of four seats that cover parts of the metropolitan borough of Wirral covering the council wards of Wallasey, Seacombe, Liscard, New Brighton, Moreton West and Saughall Massie, Leasowe and Moreton East, and Upton. The seat has been represented by Angela Eagle since 1992 who is running for re-election as the Labour Party’s candidate.

The seat has changed slightly, gaining the northern part of the Upton ward from Wirral West. According to election forecaster Electoral Calculus, Labour would have won 64.3% of the vote under the seat’s new boundaries with the Conservatives on 25.1%.
