Voting and elections

London elections

The Mayor of London is an elected politician who, along with the 25 members of the London Assembly are elected by Londoners to represent their interests.

The very first London Mayor elections were held in 2000, after a referendum voted for a directly elected Mayor and separately elected London Assembly to scrutinise the Mayor’s work.

Since then, the elections take place every four years. Islington, along with the boroughs of Hackney and Waltham Forest, is part of the North East London Constituency for the London Assembly. Islington has one representative on the London Assembly - Jennette Arnold OBE AM (Labour).
