CAPTION PRINTED BELOW PICTURE: 'Cumberland'
The map was published within the 1832 Reform Act for the purposes of showing the proposed electoral constituencies within the county. The most populous counties were split into divisions (shown by the red line) with each division to be represented by a Member of Parliament. The further split into electoral hundreds or wards is shown by the brown lines. The towns were to be represented by borough constituencies, shown in the map by red circles; the largest of these (for which the red dot is surrounded by an outer circle) elected two Members of Parliament, the smaller boroughs elected a single MP. The main polling stations are shown as light blue squares, with other polling stations being marked as crosses on some of the county maps.
