Snetterton is an electoral division of the Georgeland House of Commons. It is located in the affluent Doubledance neighbourhood of the same name, and has existed as a division since 1891. For almost the entirety of its life, the seat has been held by the Conservative Party of Georgeland; this streak was broken when Terry Truman, of the poplist Ita, was elected at a 2019 by-election.
Snetterton is famous for being the seat of both Thomas Richardson, Prime Minister 1967-1970, and his son Sam Richardson, who died of a heart attack in 2006. The seat has been held since June 2006 by Simon Birmingham.
Snetterton has the second-highest average wealth per consituent of any division in the country; the highest is Belfast.
