 UK Parliament - elections
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.
In the 1992 parliament, there were 651 constituencies rising to 659 from the 1997 general election but this was reduced by 13 seats in Scotland from the 2005 election making a total of 646 constituencies.  Constituencies range considerably in area and in the number of electors.

Perceived importance of the election: Turnout tends to be strongest when, at a national level, the election is seen as being of special political significance or when local political issues are of sufficient salience to draw out voters from all parties.
General elections in particular should be a key moment in the political cycle when voters have political power in their hands.
