Make sure you are registered to vote

The Mayor of London and London Assembly elections are now just a few weeks away. Although the poll takes place on 5 May, you must be registered to vote by 18 April or you will lose your chance to vote.

On the day you’ll be voting not only for the Mayor, but also the London Assembly members. These are the people who hold the Mayor to account, examine their decisions and make sure they deliver their promises to Londoners.

How to register to vote

It’s quick and easy to register online at gov.uk/register-to-vote – you just need your national insurance number and date of birth. If you do not have access to the Internet, or need help to register online, you can attend one of the drop-in sessions available at locations across the borough. Find your nearest drop-in session here. Alternatively, you can contact the elections team on 020 7974 6000.

Apply for a postal vote

If you cannot or do not wish to attend your polling station, you can apply for a postal vote once you have registered. You will need to download and complete the form available on our website here. The deadline for returning this form to Camden’s elections team is 19 April.

Polling stations

The location of your polling station will be on the poll card that will be delivered to you before polling day. You can also find the location of your nearest polling station online here.
