The Mayor of London, London Assembly and local by-elections in the Cranford and Hounslow Heath wards, will take place on Thursday, 6 May 2021.  

Your poll card tells you which polling station you should use to vote on 6 May, but you do not need your poll card to vote.

If you don’t receive your poll card by next Tuesday 6 April, please check that you’re registered to vote by contacting the council’s Electoral Services team on  elections@hounslow.gov.uk or by calling 020 8583 2828.

You can register to vote online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. It only takes a few minutes.

All United Kingdom, Irish and Commonwealth citizens are eligible to vote in the Mayor of London and London Assembly election, as long as they are 18 or over on polling day.

If you have moved recently, you should have re-registered at your new address.

The deadline for registering to vote at the upcoming local election is midnight on 19 April 2021.

How to vote

Your polling station will be open from 7am until 10pm on election day. Your poll card will include details of your named polling station.  A full list of polling stations will be available online at www.hounslow.gov.uk/elections  from 20 April 2021.

To apply, visit the Your Vote Matters website, download the relevant form and return it to elections@hounslow.gov.uk (an image scanned copy or a photograph is acceptable but please ensure that the image is legible or your application will be rejected).
