Elections in Northern Ireland have long been unique in their political and constitutional magnitude, the melodramatic nature of the campaigns and the consequences of their outcomes. This book provides an overview of elections in Northern Ireland since the early twentieth century and the ways in which they were reported in the Belfast press.
