This is a list of polling districts within the Huddersfield East electoral registration division from 1965-1985.

These Districts appear together with Huddersfield West in a series of registers between 1965 and 1968 as Huddersfield Division; are separated out between 1969 and 1983 as Huddersfield East Division; and end in the combined registers along with Huddersfield West between 1984-1985 as the Huddersfield Division.


The Polling District appears in bold and townships within each District are listed below it. The Polling Districts are given here in alphabetical order, although this may not be the order in which they appear in the electoral register. It should help to note which Polling District a place appears in to make searching through the electoral registers an easier task.

Dated entries indicate when townships were re-named as wards or parts of wards (or occassionally when the Polling Districts had other places added to them). Each Polling District was assigned a letter or number of letters which usually remains the same from one year to the next.
