Market towns of Vestfold county

The Market towns of Vestfold county (Norwegian: Kjøpstedene i Vestfold fylke) was an electoral district for parliamentary elections in Norway. It comprised the market towns (Norwegian: kjøpsteder) of Holmestrand, Horten, Tønsberg, Sandefjord and Larvik in Vestfold county.

The district was established ahead of the Norwegian parliamentary election, 1921 following the change from single member constituencies to plural member constituencies in 1919.

Following changes in the national policy on market towns in 1952, these electoral districts were abolished ahead of the Norwegian parliamentary election, 1953. Instead, each county became one electoral district, and for election purposes the towns were integrated into their respective counties.


The following representatives were elected from the Market towns of Vestfold county:
