ELECTIONS 2004: 5.2 MILLION LONDONERS REGISTERED TO VOTE

Official figures for the number of Londoners registered to vote in the forthcoming elections for mayor of London, London Assembly and European Parliament have now been published by London Elects.

The figures show that there are approximately 5.2 million people registered to vote in the elections for the mayor of London and London Assembly, and just over 5 million people registered to vote in the London elections for the European Parliament.

Citizens of EU countries who are resident in London can choose whether to vote for London MEPs or MEPs standing in their home country and this is thought to explain the discrepancy in electorate figures.

The voters registered to vote in the mayoral, Assembly and European Parliament elections are detailed by borough below:

Notes:

1.London Elects is an independent team working directly for the Greater London returning officer under separate budget and reporting lines. The Greater London returning officer has overall responsibility, as laid out by the Representation of the People Act 1983, for ensuring a fair and accurate election.

2.Londoners voting in the combined elections on 10 June will have a total of five votes; a first choice (or first preference) and a second choice for London mayor; a vote for a constituency assembly member and one for a London-wide assembly member chosen by voting for a political party or an independent candidate. The fifth vote will be for a designated political party or independent candidate, which will form a London-wide list of MEPs.
