Aberconwy is a constituency of the National Assembly for Wales, created for the 2007 Assembly election. It elects one Assembly Member by the first past the post method of election. Also, however, it is one of nine constituencies in the North Wales electoral region, which elects four additional members, in addition to nine constituency members, to produce a degree of proportional representation for the region as a whole.

Boundaries

The constituency has the boundaries of the Aberconwy Westminster constituency, which will come into use for the next United Kingdom general election. It merges into one constituency areas formerly within the Conwy and Meirionnydd Nant Conwy constituencies. Conwy was a constituency within the North Wales electoral region, straddling the boundary between the preserved county of Clwyd and the preserved county of Gwynedd. Meirionnydd Nant Conwy also straddled this boundary, but was within the Mid and West Wales region.Aberconwy is a North Wales constituency entirely within Clwyd.

The North Wales region was created for the first Assembly election, in 1999. For the 2007 election, however, it had new boundaries. It includes the constituencies of Aberconwy, Alyn and Deeside, Arfon, Clwyd South, Clwyd West, Delyn, Vale of Clwyd, Wrexham and Ynys Môn.

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.
