And if you feel like that, don’t worry because we’ve got you covered to break it all down.

When are the 2022 municipal elections?

If you have met the deadline and registered to vote for the next local candidate, you will be able to vote in May.

With Election Day taking place on Thursday, May 5, polling stations will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

And if you’re in line at 10 p.m., you’ll still be eligible to vote.

Who can vote?

If you are over 18 and registered to vote and live in a local election area, you will be able to vote.

Residents with more than one address, such as students with different fixed-term housing, may be registered to vote at multiple locations, but this does not occur during legislative elections.

How to vote:

You won’t need your voting card on the day, but it will speed up the process with all your information already on the card.

At the polling stations, you will be given your ballot paper which will contain the list of candidates standing for election in your region.

How London boroughs work for local elections:

Each of London’s 32 boroughs is divided into wards from which voters can choose councilors for each seat.

The elected councilor will hold the position for four years.

In the 27 boroughs, the leader of the council will be determined by the party field with the most seats on the council.

While the other five boroughs Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Lewisham, New and Croydon will have their local council leader chosen directly by vote in a mayoral system.

How can I see the results?

You can see the results by checking the London Councils website, which will show results across London.

Full results for your ward and borough can be found on the local council’s website.
