London elections and the EU referendum – make sure you’re registered to vote

Tuesday 29 March 2016


Mayor of London and London Assembly elections

On Thursday 5 May 2016, people from across London have the chance to vote for the Mayor of London and the 25 Members of the London Assembly.

The people you vote for in these elections are responsible for many aspects of your everyday life – from the underground, local bus services and policing, to green spaces, air quality and Trafalgar Square.

To have your say on 5 May you need to make sure that you are registered to vote by Monday 18 April 2016.

You can vote in the 5 May 2016 elections for the Mayor of London and London Assembly if you:

  • are registered to vote by 18 April 2016
  • live in London
  • will be at least 18 years old on the day of the elections
  • are a British citizen, a European Union citizen or a Commonwealth citizen who has or does not require leave to remain in the UK

EU referendum

Once you have registered to vote, you will also be able to vote in the EU referendum on Thursday 23 June 2016 if you are:

  • a British, Irish and Commonwealth citizen; 
  • over 18 on or before Thursday 23 June; and 
  • are resident in the UK or are a UK national who has lived overseas for less than 15 years.

Members of the House of Lords and Commonwealth citizens in Gibraltar will also be eligible, unlike in a general election. Citizens from EU countries – apart from Ireland, Malta and Cyprus – will not get a vote.
