Paul McFadden, from Arnold, used Your Questions Answered to ask: "Does the Fixed Term Parliaments Act mean that the next scheduled election will also be in December in five years' time?"
According to the 2011 Fixed Term Parliaments Act (FTPA), a general election must be called five years after the last poll.
So does this mean Christmas shoppers will be carrying around polling cards in 2024?
The short answer is no.
December's election was called using an emergency piece of legislation, but the FTPA states that an election should be called on "the first Thursday in May in the fifth calendar year" after the last election.
So the next general election will be scheduled for 2 May, 2024.
The act was introduced by the coalition government in 2011 as part of the agreement drawn up by the Tories and Lib Dems in the wake of the 2010 general election.
So an election can only be triggered before that if a motion of no confidence is passed in the government and no alternative administration can be formed or if at least two-thirds of MPs approved calls for an early election.
Both the Conservatives and Labour have, however, said they will scrap the FTPA.
Previously it was up to the prime minister of the day to choose when to call an election, provided it was within five years of the last one being held.
So although December elections will not become the norm, returning to the old system is likely to mean the next prime minister will be able to call a general election at will.
