Email to all people on the register

On Tuesday 3 March 2020, we sent an email to all people on the register with an email address. The purpose of this email is to inform people they are currently on our electoral register and able to vote in the upcoming GLA elections.

We want to maximise participation in these elections and to reassure people well in advance of the postal and proxy deadlines so they are able to change their voting method if necessary.

If you did not receive an email it is either because you are not registered, or you did not supply a valid email address to us.
