If you have any questions about elections, voting, registering to vote or standing at an election, contact us.


We are responsible for:

  • producing the annual electoral register, the list of all Islington residents eligible to vote and for the monthly registration process that runs from 1 December to mid-August
  • managing and organising all local and Parliamentary (General) elections and referendums held in the borough
  • reviewing the constituency, ward and polling district boundaries in the borough
  • publishing a notice every February that shows the number of local electors who must sign a petition (5% of the electorate) to trigger a referendum on changing the council constitution, for example to an elected Mayor.

February Notice

Each February we publish a notice which gives the number of local government electors who must sign a petition (5% of electorate) to trigger a referendum on changing the governance of the council to, for example, a directly elected Mayor.
