    On Thursday 5th May, voting opens for a new London Mayor and members of the London Assembly. We believe student voices deserve to be heard, and that everyone who can vote, should vote. 

    Here are seven key things every LSE student should know before they make their way to the polling station.


    1. Who’s actually running for Mayor

    There are 12 candidates running for the position of Mayor of London. These are:

    (Candidates without links didn’t submit a LondonElects mini manifesto.)

    2. The difference between a Constituency London Assembly member and a London-wide Assembly member

    You’ll be asked to vote for each of these. The Constituency London Assembly member represents your local area on the London Assembly. There are 14 constituencies which will elect a representative.

    The London-wide Assembly member represents the whole of London on the London Assembly. There are 11 London-wide Assembly Member seats in total. 

    3. Who’s running for the London Assembly.

    Constituency London Assembly members

    Head to to see all the candidates for the Constituency London Assembly.

    London-wide Assembly Members

    Head to to see the names of the candidates for the London-wide Assembly. Candidates are standing from the following parties:

    • Animal Welfare Party
    • Britain First - Putting British people first
    • British National Party
    • Caroline Pidgeon’s London Liberal Democrats
    • Christian Peoples Alliance
    • Conservative Party
    • Green Party - “vote Green on orange”
    • Labour Party
    • Respect (George Galloway)
    • The House Party - Homes for Londoners
    • UK Independence Party (UKIP)
    • Women’s Equality Party

    4. How to fill in the polling cards

    When you arrive at the polling station you’ll be given three ballot papers in the 2016 elections: one to vote for the Mayor of London and two for the London Assembly.


    Pink ballot paper: London Mayor

    • You have 2 choices for Mayor.  
    • Vote once [X] in column A for your first choice. Each candidate will either be part of a political party or standing as an independent candidate
    • Vote once [X] in column B for your second choice.
    • For your second choice to be valid it must be different from your first choice.
    • If you only mark a second choice, your vote will not be counted.
    • Marking a second choice doesn’t reduce the chances of your first choice candidate being successful.

    Yellow ballot paper: Constituency London Assembly member

    • Choose who you want to represent your local area on the London Assembly.
    • Vote for only one candidate by putting a cross [X] next to your choice.
    • Your London Assembly constituency is not the same as your parliamentary constituency. It is made up of the local authority you live in and 1, 2 or 3 other London local authorities.

    Orange ballot paper: London-wide Assembly member

    • Choose who you want to represent the whole of London on the London Assembly.
    • Vote only once by putting a cross [X] in the box next to your choice.

    5. Where your polling station is

    6. What time your polling station opens and closes

    • Polling stations across London open at 7am, and close at 10pm.

    7. What Boris looks like on a zipline 

    It’s like this.


    And finally…

    8. The elections coverage - exit polls, interviews and results - will be streamed in the Three Tuns!

    We’ll be streaming the BBC coverage from 1pm in the Three Tuns on Thursday, and from 1pm on Friday, until the results are announced. Drop by! (We will take a break at around 8.30pm to screen the Liverpool game.)

    The results of the London Mayoral election are expected at around 6-8pm on Friday 6th May.
