Meeting for prospective candidates and agents

Invitation to the meeting

The Greater London Returning Officer and I invite you to a meeting for all prospective candidates and agents to discuss preparations for the Mayor of London and London Assembly Elections on 6 May 2021.

The meeting will be held via Microsoft Teams and will take place on Tuesday 23 February at 5pm.

We will cover the following topics:

  • standing as a candidate, key dates, nomination forms, practicalities and agents
  • mayoral election address booklet
  • rules on spending, donations and the campaign
  • covid security
  • AOB

There will be opportunities for anyone attending this meeting to ask questions which we will endeavour to answer. If you wish to attend please contact Lauren Doherty by emailing [email protected].

Please read the government’s latest advice on campaigning for this election.

You will note that further guidance is to follow, including advice on the nominations process. We are holding off publishing our candidate nomination packs on the London Elects website until this guidance is issued. We will advise you as soon as we do publish – hopefully in the next couple of weeks. For further information please contact Lea Goddard by emailing [email protected].

We look forward to seeing you on the 23rd February.

Alex Conway 
Deputy Greater London Returning Officer
