UK General Elections 2010 – A Snapshot
Country: United Kingdom
Election type: Parliamentary Elections
Poll date: May 06, 2010
Constituencies: 650 seats in the Commons (Lower House) representing constituencies across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland
Voting system: First past the post. Each eligible voter has one vote in their local constituency, and the candidate with the most votes becomes the MP for that area. Candidates do not need an overall majority to win. The political party with the most MPs usually forms the government -- though two or more parties with a combined majority of MPs may form a coalition government. A total of 326 seats is needed for a majority.
