The outcome of the elections will have a significant impact on our local area. The Mayor is responsible for, amongst other things, London’s bus and tube networks as well as policing. Seven candidates are standing this time around, and this is your chance to vote on who will run London for the next 4 years. The London Assembly is responsible for scrutinising the work of the Mayor and holding him (or her) accountable for his (or her) decisions.
You will be eligible to vote if you are aged 18 or over on 3rd May; a citizen of the UK, EU or Commonwealth and living in London. However, you must be on the Electoral Register. You have until Wednesday 18th April to register to vote. If you aren’t registered already, go to the London Elects website – click here
You can vote in person at a Polling Station on 3rd May. Alternatively, you can apply to vote by post, or you can nominate a “proxy” (someone else to cast your vote for you). If you want to apply for a postal vote, or appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf, you must do so by Wednesday 18th April. For more information, go to the London Elects website – click here
