Woodford Green is part of the parliamentary constituency of Chingford and Woodford Green, represented by Iain Duncan Smith, leader of the Conservative Party from 2001 to 2003. He was Secretary of State for Work and Pensions from 2010 to 2016. Duncan Smith is a successor of Sir Winston Churchill, who was also MP for this area and is commemorated by a statue on Woodford Green erected in 1959.

In the 1920s and 1930s, Clement Attlee, later Labour Prime Minister from 1945 to 1951, had a residence in Woodford Green, the seat of his political adversary, Winston Churchill. A blue plaque to that effect resides on Attlee’s former house in Monkhams Avenue.
