Comprehensive Breakdown of London Elections in May 2024 by Borough as Mayor and Assembly Members Selected

The London Mayor and London Assembly elections occur every four years, offering eligible voters the opportunity to have their voices heard. Scheduled for May 2, these elections encompass various voting categories: the Mayor of London, your constituency London Assembly member, and the London-wide Assembly members. Voting is slated to occur on Thursday, May 2.

Before heading to a polling station, it’s imperative to ensure voter registration. The deadline for registration was Tuesday, April 16. Subsequently, the winners will be announced at City Hall on Saturday, May 4.

London Mayoral Election


The upcoming May elections are characterized by a tightly contested mayoral race, predominantly between incumbent Mayor Sadiq Khan and Conservative candidate Susan Hall. However, an array of other candidates vies for electoral support.

Hall’s campaign pledges to reverse the ULEZ expansion, which Khan implemented, while the latter promises to establish a new London Bus Company if re-elected, emphasizing public ownership of the city’s routes for the first time in three decades.

If Khan secures a third term, it will mark him as the longest-serving Mayor of London. While Khan and Hall are frontrunners, 13 candidates stand in contention for the election. The Mayor of London election follows the first-past-the-post system, allowing voters to cast a ballot for a single candidate.
