  United Kingdom general election, 2001 - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
The UK general election, 2001 was held on 7 June 2001 and was dubbed "the quiet landslide" by the media.
The elections were also marked by apathy from the voting public, turnout being only 59%, the lowest since 1918.
Throughout the election the Labour party had maintained a significant lead in the opinion polls and the result was deemed to be so certain that some bookmakers paid out for a Labour majority before the election day.

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 province'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.
The results were interpreted by the UK media as an indicator of a breakdown in trust in the government, and in the prime minister, Tony Blair, in particular.

On election night, November 7, the media prematurely declared a winner twice based on exit polls before finally deciding that the Florida race was too close to call.
The outcome of the November 7 election was not known for more than a month after the balloting, because of the extended process of counting and then recounting of Florida presidential ballots, which would ultimately decide the election.

 GENUKI: The Merthyr Election of 1906
As during the previous election the contest was three-cornered and the issues, with the exception of the war controversy, revolved around similar themes.
The 1906 election re-affirmed Hardie's representation of Merthyr Boroughs.
Although the election seemed to reflect the extension and solidity of the Labour Movement in the area, this Labour victory was stultified by its dependence on Liberal goodwill and the ideal of independent Labour representation remained a chimera for the workmen of Merthyr Boroughs.

An election is a decision making process where people vote for preferred political candidates or parties to act as representatives in government.
The universal acceptance of elections as a tool for selecting representatives in modern democracies is in sharp contrast with the practice in the democratic archetype, ancient Athens, where elections were considered an oligarchic institution and where most political offices were filled using allotment / sortition.
The Democracy Watch (International) website, further defines fair democratic elections as, "Elections in which great care is taken to prevent any explicit or hidden structural bias towards any one candidate, aside from those beneficial biases that naturally result from an electorate that is equally well informed about the various assets and liabilities of each candidate".
