Bury North 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. It is a marginal seat between Labour and the Conservatives.
Following the 2000 Boundary Review, the local government ward of Unsworth is transferred from Bury North to Bury South. No other changes are suggested. A traditional Labour-Conservative marginal, Ramsbottom and Tottington are mostly Tory, whereas the town of Bury itself (particularly the Bury East ward) is generally more favourable to Labour, but not always overwhelmingly so.
