Sunday 13 June (European result)
Voting for the mayor of London, the 25 Members of the London Assembly, and nine Members of the European Parliament, will be taking place on 10 June 2004. Counting of the votes will take place the following day. The 14 constituency counts will be taking place in 10 venues around London. There will be two 'super-sites', Alexandra Palace (four constituency counts) and Olympia (two). There will be no counting of votes at City Hall.
The result of the election for the mayor of London and the London Assembly will be announced on the evening of 11 June, in the chamber at City Hall.
The result of the European Parliament election will be held shortly after 9pm on 13 June, in the same location.

On 10 June there will be two ballot boxes: one for mayoral and assembly ballot papers, the other for European ballot papers. To hasten the delivery of the mayoral and assembly result, these ballot papers will be counted first, followed by the European ballot boxes.
As the count progresses, the only results that will be available will be the election results for the 14 constituency members of the London Assembly. These declarations will be made in each constituency's local count centre, by the constituency returning officer.
Voting figures for the mayoral contest and the 11 London-wide assembly seats will not be publicly available at the count centres. These will be relayed to the central calculation venue at City Hall, and only once all 14 constituencies have finished counting can these results be declared.
By law, the result of the European Parliament election cannot be declared until voting has ended across Europe. Therefore although the European Parliament ballot papers will be counted on 11 June, these voting figures will be retained until 13 June, when they will be announced shortly after 9pm.
