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.

In terms of overall shares of the vote, it was the most three-cornered election since the 1923 election, though the Liberal Democrats failed to regain the success of the SDP-Liberal Alliance in the 1980s in terms of their share of the popular vote.

The United States presidential election of 2000 was one of the closest Presidential elections in United States' history, with 537 votes separating the candidates in the swing state of Florida.
