Email to everyone on the register

If you:

  • able to vote in the GLA elections
  • have given us your email address

You will get an email from us early next year reminding you that you are able to vote.

We want to make sure that as many people as possible vote in these elections. We will remind you of the postal and proxy deadlines well in advance so you can change your method if needed.

If you do not get an email it is either because:

  • you are not registered

Voting and COVID-19

We are encouraging voters to register to vote by post in the upcoming GLA elections. This is to lower the spread of COVID-19.
