Erewash is an area within Derbyshire containing the Towns of Ilkeston and Long Eaton. It is bordered on the south by the River Trent and the River Derwent and to the East by the River Erewash, however the western boundaries of the region vary depending on whether one is considering the Constituency or the Borough of Erewash.
Erewash Liberal Democrats cover the full area of the Borough of Erewash, which includes the areas of Borrowash, and West Hallam. Ockbrook & Borrowash, Little Eaton & Stanley and West Hallam & Dale Abbey that are currently part of the Mid-Derbyshire parliamentary constuency.


As part of the coalition agreement a review of constituency boundaries was conducted with the aim of reducing the number of MPs from 650 to 600 and to rebalance the number of electors in each constituency. These changes will mean the abolition of the Mid-Derbyshire constituency with the ward of Ockbrook & Borrowash joining the Erewash parliamentary constituency, and the wards of Little Eaton & Stanley and West Hallam & Dale Abbey being added to the existing Amber Valley constituency. However, as of June 2019 these plans are yet to be brought before parliament for approval.

In the european elections Erewash is in the East Midlands euro-constituency which currently elects 5 MEPs,by the deHondt method of proportional representation. Of these 5 MEPs, who were elected in May 2019, Bill Newton-Dunn is the sole Liberal Democrat.

Erewash borough is represented in Derbyshire County Council by councilors elected in electoral divisions.
