Remember to Vote on Thursday
Three ballots, four votes
On Thursday 5 May, more than five million Londoners will make their way to polling stations across the capital to elect a new Mayor of London and 25 London Assembly Members.
The results of this election will determine how London will be governed from City Hall for the next four years. Counting starts at 8am on Friday 6 May with constituency declarations being made at the count centres (Olympia, Alexandra Palace, ExCel). The declaration of the Mayoral and London wide Assembly Member results will be made at City Hall.
An online tool has been launched to help Hounslow residents locate their polling stations for the elections on 5 May. To use the tool, go to the ‘Voter’ section of the www.londonelects.org.uk website, select ‘Ways of voting’ and enter your postcodes into the polling station finder search box. The polling station finder will then produce the address of your allocated polling station and show its proximity to your home on an interactive map.
You can only vote at the polling station which has been assigned to you so it’s important you know where you’re going. The location of the polling station is also available on the polling card registered voters should have received through the post. You do not need to take your polling card to vote.
These elections are for the Mayor of London, the 14 Constituency London Assembly Members, and the 11 London-wide Assembly Members. You will be given three ballot papers when you vote. For more information visit London Elect’s How to vote page.
