The next UK General Election date is technically fixed for May 5th 2022 thanks to the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011, but with a weakened Conservative minority government supported by the DUP and Brexit Deadlock an early General Election in 2019 is a possibility.
General Election Poll
General Election Poll of Polls
The Britain Elects poll of polls only uses pollsters following the British Polling Council standards and uses a modified moving average with weightings to counter more prolific pollsters and uneven spacing of publishing. Pollsters used: BMG, ComRes, Deltapoll, ICM, Ipsos Mori, Opinium, Panelbase, Populus, Survation, TNS and YouGov.
Early General Election Motion 2019
The General Election could be held before May 5th 2022 in the event of an early election motion being passed by a super-majority of two-thirds of MPs in the House of Commons, or a vote of no confidence in the government that’s not followed by a vote of confidence within two weeks.
