Parliamentary, or General Elections are held every five years.
Members of Parliament (MPs) represent people from their local area at the Houses of Parliament in Westminster. Their time is split between their area (also known as their constituency) and Parliament.
Within their constituency, MPs work with residents and local businesses to see how local problems can be resolved. Residents can contact their MP about issues they might be facing, for example employment, housing or benefits.
