Mid-term elections and by-elections are different in various ways. A mid-term election is held when the Lok Sabha or the legislative assembly is unable to complete its tenure of 5 years. On the other hand, a by-election is held when a member of the house of the assembly dies or resigns. In the case of the mid-term election, the elected house is then given a fresh tenure with full 5 years, but, in a by-election, the newly elected representative only continues the unexpired tenure of the previous representative.
