Poll stations will open from 7am to 10pm. Voters voting in person at a polling station must show an accepted photo ID before being permitted to vote. Information on voter photo IDs can be found on the Electoral Commission website, and information on the elections can be found on the London Elects website.

Applications to register to vote (if not already registered) must reach the relevant Electoral Registration Officer by midnight on Tuesday, 16th April 2024. Applications can be made online on GOV.UK.

The Greater London Authority will post a mayoral booklet in April, and all electors will receive a poll card.

You may need to apply for a photo ID to vote (called a ‘Voter Authority Certificate’). Use this service to apply for a ‘Voter Authority Certificate’. You can use it to vote in person in some elections and referendums in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales). You cannot use it as proof of identification for any other reason.
