How to register to vote

Registration for the Mayor of London and London Assembly elections will close on 19 April 2016. If you are not registered you will not be able to vote in these elections, however you should register using the link below to make sure that you can vote in future elections.

Can I vote?

To be able to vote in the London elections you must:

  • live in London
  • be a British, Republic of Ireland, Commonwealth or EU citizen
  • be 18 years old or over on 5 May 2016. 16 and 17 year olds can register with their local borough and they will be added to the electoral register as soon as they become 18.

Being registered with the council for services such as paying council tax will not automatically include you on the electoral register. Although both are held by the council, the two lists are separate.

How do I register to vote?

It takes just a few minutes to register to make sure you can have your say. Visit www.aboutmyvote.co.uk to download and print off a simple form. You then just send it back to your local borough's election office (contact details are provided).
