On Thursday 2 May 2024, Londoners can vote to elect the Mayor of London, 14 members of the London Assembly that represent London's 14 constituencies, and 11 Assembly Members who will represent the whole of London.

The deadline to register to vote in person or online is next Tuesday.

The job of a London Assembly member is to hold the mayor to account for decisions made, to make sure they are in the best interest of residents.

If you vote in person at the polling station, you will need to show one form of photo ID, but it needs to be the original version and not a photocopy. The name on your ID must be the same name you used to register to vote.

  • Deadline to register to vote is Tuesday 16 April
  • Deadline to register to vote by post is by 5pm Wednesday 17 April
  • Deadline to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate is by 5pm Wednesday 24 April
  • Deadline to register to vote by proxy is by 5pm Wednesday 24 April

If you register to vote online, this must be done before Tuesday, 16 April or you will not be able to vote in the London Elections.

Because of a change in legislation brought in by the government, you now need to take a photo ID to the polling station. You can take your passport, photo driving licence, Blue Badge, Freedom Pass and various other forms of photo ID. You can view a full list online.

If you know you can't get to the polling station on polling day or if you feel that it might be more convenient, you can vote by post rather than attending a polling station to vote in person on the day. You will need to register to do this and the deadline is 5pm on Wednesday, 17 April 2024.
