About Elections

Parliamentary general elections

The interval between parliamentary general elections is set at five years. An election may be triggered for various reasons and called earlier by the Prime Minister.

The UK is currently divided into 650 areas called parliamentary constituencies, each of which is represented by one MP in the House of Commons. Parliamentary constituencies are made up of a number of electoral wards from district councils so parliamentary boundaries may cross over one or more district council boundaries.

There are two constituencies within the Broadland District Council area which we are responsible for:

  • Broadland constituency, which also includes some electoral wards from North Norfolk District Council
  • Norwich North constituency, which also includes some electoral wards from Norwich City Council
