If you’re a City worker, you may spend more time in the office than you do at home, even after we re-emerge from Covid19… so why not have the same say on services in the Square Mile as you have where you live? Staff in City businesses and organisations can join residents and vote in the City of London Corporation’s elections.

The City is unique in residents and workers being able to register to vote for local ward councillors and Alderman. This means they can have a voice on areas including air quality, cycling, policing, green spaces, commuting and transport.

Appointed voters should reflect the diversity of the organisation’s employees. This includes gender, ethnicity and seniority. The right to be appointed as a voter is open to staff at all levels – from chief executive to entry-level employees and even regular contractors – so that the voters are truly representative of the whole City.

The City Corporation has sent registration forms to all eligible organisations. If you want to find out if your company has a named contact to help you register to vote, please get in touch on 0800 587 5537 or electoralservices@cityoflondon.gov.uk

Due to the current pandemic planned local elections may be postponed until March 2022. But the electoral register is refreshed every year so it is important to keep your details up to date.
