Everything you need to do to vote in the London elections in May

3 April 2024

On Thursday 2 May, Londoners can vote to elect the Mayor of London, 14 members of the London Assembly that represent London’s 14 constituencies, and 11 Assembly Members who will represent the whole of London. 

The deadline to register to vote is Tuesday 16 April. 

Don’t forget you will now need to provide voter ID to vote at polling stations on Thursday 2 May.

All voters will need to take an approved form of photo identification to the polling station to vote, which will take place between 7am and 10pm. If you do not have an accepted form of photo ID, you can apply for a Voter Authority Certificate until 5pm on Wednesday 24 April. 

If you do not wish to show ID at a polling station you can apply to vote by post or by proxy

The deadline to register to vote by post in these elections is Wednesday 17 April at 5pm. You will need your date of birth, a copy of your signature and your National Insurance number. Postal voters will not be affected by voter ID and will be issued with their postal ballot papers as usual. 

The deadline to register to vote by proxy in these elections is Wednesday 24 April at 5pm. From 2 May, voters will be limited to acting as a proxy for two people, regardless of their relationship. Anyone voting on behalf of UK voters who live overseas could act as a proxy for up to four people.

If you have any questions, you can speak to one of our advisors via web chat Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.
