It’s your vote, don’t lose it – vote 3 May

Published on

Bromley Council is advising residents about making sure they have their say in the Mayor of London and London Assembly elections on 3 May.

Are you registered to vote with Bromley Council?

Residents who know they are not on the electoral roll and those who have recently moved into the borough have until 18 April to make sure they have registered to vote on 3 May. 

Carol Ling, head of Electoral Services, said: "The Electoral Services team is here to help everyone who is entitled to vote in the London Elections to make sure they don't lose that opportunity." 

Do you need a postal or proxy vote?

Residents who might not be able to vote in person, at a polling station, for example because they are on holiday, can apply to vote by post and must ensure their application is received by 5pm on Wednesday, 18 April 2012.  

Residents can also appoint a proxy as someone who can vote on their behalf in the election if they cannot vote in person on the day or by post. The deadline for applying for a proxy vote is 5pm on Wednesday, 25 April 2012.

For further information you can contact Bromley Council's Electoral Services at electoral@bromley.gov.uk or call 020 8313 4364 between 9am and 5pm for relevant forms and further information.
