Abstract
This shows the 77 Electoral Divisions within Hertfordshire. It includes the currently elected Member for that Division as well as their Party.
As at the May 2013 elections, there are 46 Conservative, 16 Liberal Democrats and 15 Labour Councillors/

Apart from the special cases of the Isles of Scilly and the Greater London Authority (GLA), the English county councils are the only type of local authority in the UK which does not use standard electoral (district) wards for electing councillors. Instead they use their own larger units, which are termed electoral divisions.

These county electoral divisions are confined within district boundaries, but need not be based on whole electoral (district) wards. In Hertfordshire there are a number of electoral divisions (33 as at 1 April 2010) which include partial electoral (district) wards.

Like electoral wards, county electoral divisions are defined by the Boundary Committee for England (BCFE).
