Constituency boundaries and council area
The Livingston constituency was created at the same time as the Scottish Parliament, in 1999, with the name and boundaries of an existing Westminster constituency. In 2005, however, Scottish Westminster (House of Commons) constituencies were mostly replaced with new constituencies.

Following their First Periodic review of constituencies to the Scottish Parliament in time for the 2011 elections, the Boundary Commission for Scotland recommended alterations to the existing Livingston and Linlithgow constituencies.
Livingston was effectively abolished, replaced by a newly formed Almond Valley seat. This constituency takes in the Livingston, East Calder, Fauldhouse, Breich Valley, and Seafield areas. A newly shaped Linlithgow constituency was formed from the Linlithgow, Broxburn, Blackburn, Whitburn, and Armadale areas.
