Three minute challenge

If you’ve been keeping an eye on our Twitter account you may have noticed us setting various challenges to highlight how fast it is to register to vote. It takes just three minutes to make sure you can have your say: quicker than you could eat an Easter egg. And with the election to decide who gets London’s biggest job just around the corner, there’s no better time to check whether we’re correct. Visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote and see how long it takes you.

The poll for the new Mayor of London takes place on 5 May, but 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.
