Interactive Polling Station Finder now available online

An online tool has been launched to help Londoners locate their polling stations for the upcoming Mayor of London and London Assembly elections on May 5.

The interactive Polling Station Finder, available at LondonElects.org.uk, uses electoral register information to identify the specific polling station each voter should visit to cast their votes.

To use the tool, Londoners should go to the ‘Voter’ section of the website, select ‘Ways of voting’ and input their postcodes into the Polling Station Finder search box.  The Polling Station Finder will then produce the address of their allocated polling station and show its proximity to their home on an interactive map.

On 5 May, Londoners can only vote at the polling station which has been assigned to them[1].  The location of the polling station is also available on the polling card registered voters should have received through the post.

Greater London Returning Officer, Jeff Jacobs, said:

“In just over two weeks the people of London will go to the polls to determine a new Mayor and Assembly - but Londoners will only be able to vote at the specific polling station to which they have been allocated.

This map will be an invaluable tool for voters wanting to find their allocated polling stations.  So go online, put in your postcode and see where you can have your say on May 5.”

The Polling Station Finder is available at: www.londonelects.org.uk/im-voter/ways-voting.  Feel free to embed it in your own website.
