Why are some boroughs holding their counts on different days?

Elections are being held in all 32 London boroughs on 3 May 2018 to elect councillors, and in four boroughs directly elected Mayors, to represent and serve the people of each borough.

The priority of the Returning Officer in each borough is to ensure the count is accurate and that voters have confidence in the election result in the borough they are responsible for.

Managing an election count is a complicated task, and Returning Officers take into account a range of local factors when deciding when to hold the count.

An overnight count is not always feasible and circumstances change between one election and another. For example, different count venues may not be available at the required times.

Which London boroughs are counting on Friday 4 May?

Bromley, Hackney, Haringey, Harrow, Hounslow, Islington, Kingston, Lambeth, Lewisham, Newham, Tower Hamlets.

How does this differ from the last elections?

These are the first local elections in London since 2006 that aren’t being held on the same day as another major poll (such as Parliamentary or European elections), and boroughs have had to make different arrangements for each of these occasions.

What is the voter ID pilot in Bromley?

Bromley is one of five local authorities across England participating in the Cabinet Office pilot that will require voters on Thursday 3 May to produce ID before being issued with a ballot paper.

The other local authorities participating in the trial are Woking, Gosport, Watford, and Slough. 

The pilots will allow the Electoral Commission and Cabinet Office to evaluate the impact of asking for ID before a decision is taken on whether or not to roll it out nationally.

Find out about the pilot on the GOV.UK website

Bromley voters will be asked to show one form of photographic ID from a list that includes a passport, photo driving licence or Freedom Pass; or two forms of non-photographic ID, such as a bank card, birth certificate, gas/electricity bill or bank statement. One of the non-photographic pieces of ID must contain the voter’s registered address.
