Rochford and Southend East is a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election.

At the 2005 election, the decline in the incumbent Member of Parliament's share of the vote here was greater than in any other constituency where a Conservative sought re-election. This can be attributed to the rise in the Liberal Democrat vote, in what was the party's best electoral performance in recent time.
