Electoral wards by constituency

In 2016 Bristol City Council switched to ‘All Out’ elections from the previous ‘Elections in thirds’ for ward councillors. This was designed to move away from the previous system which meant the council switched control from one political party as often as every year. Coinciding with the change of electoral system, was a ward boundary change.
