  General election - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A general election is an election in which all members of a given political body are up for election.
The term is usually used to refer to elections held for a nation's primary legislative body, as distinguished from by-elections and local elections.
The term originates in the United Kingdom general elections for the House of Commons.

 United Kingdom general election, 2005 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The United Kingdom general election of 2005 was held on Thursday, 5 May 2005 and won by the Labour Party, led by Tony Blair.
In Northern Ireland, the election was dominated in the unionist community by a battle between the Ulster Unionist Party (UUP) and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to be the region's largest unionist party in Parliament.
Other elections in the province have shown both a shift in votes towards the DUP but also a collapse of support for the cross-community Alliance Party which is likely to be more marked in a first past the post election and thus which may work in the UUP's favour.

 elections | Houses of Parliament
General elections are elections of the whole House of Commons at one time: one Member of Parliament for each constituency in the United Kingdom.
The election timetable is then halted and starts again from the beginning of the timetable 28 days after proof of death has been received by the returning officer.  This new poll is not a by-election, but a delayed poll of the general election.
A parliamentary by-election is held when a seat falls vacant in the House of Commons, because an MP dies, resigns or can no longer be an MP for some other reason, such as being made a member of the House of Lords.

 1998 California General Election Campaign Receipts, Expenditures, Cash On Hand and Debts for State Candidates and ...
The history of combined primary and general election campaign expenditures for the State Legislature is shown in Figure 2, and this information also is graphed in Figure 3.
And these lower 1998 primary election expenditures presumably were due to the restrictions on fundraising imposed by Proposition 208 in effect throughout 1997, until the initiative's provisions were successfully challenged in court and overturned in January, 1998.
Although grand total general election receipts and expenditures for 1996 and 1998 legislative campaigns were similar, it should be kept in mind that only the 1998 legislative campaigns were conducted simultaneously with campaigns for constitutional offices.

 2005 British General Election
The election pitted the governing Labour Party against two principal rivals, the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats, and several minor parties.
In the run-up to the preceding (2001) general election, Labour was in a strong position-- the economy was robust, pluralities of voters were Labour party identifiers and favored Labour on key issues, and the party leader, Tony Blair, was viewed as having a massive "competence edge" over his rivals.
As election day approached, it became obvious that the Conservatives' negative campaign was not working; the party was trending downward in the polls, and the Liberal Democrats were moving smartly upward.
