The new "Peterborough constituency" boundaries

This week has been remarkable for the number of people who believed they could vote, but were in fact in a different constituency. Recent local government boundary changes were implemented in 2016 which might have given rise to some of this confusion.

But, even more confusingly, the 2018 parliamentary boundary review has been consulted (which many affected people will know) but it has yet to be implemented by the UK government, for reasons it hasn't made clear.
