How to register to vote

You can vote in the next Mayor of London & London Assembly elections on 7 May 2020 if, at that time, you:

  • are registered to vote
  • live in London
  • are at least 18 years old on the day of the elections
  • are a British citizen, a European Union citizen or a Commonwealth citizen who has or does not require leave to remain in the UK

Please note: being registered with the council for services and paying council tax will not automatically include you on the electoral register.

British citizens living overseas can’t vote in the Mayor of London & London Assembly elections.

Can I register to vote?

You can register to vote for future elections if you are:

  • 16 years old or over (but you cannot vote until you are 18 years old)
  • a British, Irish, European Union or qualifying Commonwealth citizen

If you are not registered, you cannot vote in any UK election or referendum. The deadline to register to vote in the 2020 Mayor of London & London Assembly elections will be announced closer to the time.
