In 2024, there will be 13 candidates for the capital’s voters to choose from.

"It is up to Londoners to decide who will run the capital for the next four years. Our website www.londonelects.org.uk tells you everything you need to know about these elections and what the Mayor and London Assembly Members are responsible for. Remember also to look out for the booklet coming through your letter box in April.”
