London Mayoral Election 2016

Mayor of London Elections 2016

London Mayoral Elections 2016 (Wikipedia)

The 2016 London Mayoral election and London Assembly elections will be held on the 5th May 2016.

London Elects organises these elections. This includes raising public awareness, creating ballot papers and managing the vote counting. Find out more here.

You can only vote if you’re on the electoral register. It only takes a few minutes to register to vote online.

Information for voters is available here.

Information for candidates is available here.

Check out the news centre here for the latest news. You can also like the London Elects Facebook page and follow @LondonElects on Twitter.

Potential Candidates

According to Wikipedia the candidates listed below are running or planning to run to be the next Mayor of London.

We have listed them alphabetically, and done some research to find out their official website addresses, Facebook pages and Twitter profiles so you can like and follow their campaigns and find out what they stand for.

We intend to write to each of the candidates and ask them about their plans;

(a) to tackle hate crime in London and,

(b) how they will work with communities affected by hate crime.

Under the current administration, the Mayor’s Office Policing and Crime (MOPAC) launched the MOPAC Hate Crime Reduction Strategy for London, which included promoting National Hate Crime Awareness Week.

We think it is important that the next Mayor of London supports and continues this important work. Hopefully you do to – and we encourage you to raise this with the candidates you are supporting.

We look forward to posting their replies in due course.

Caroline Pidgeon (Liberal Democrats)

David Furness (British National Party)

George Galloway (Respect)

John (Janek) Zylinski (Independent)

Jonathan Sibermann (Communist League) – details to be confirmed.

LGBT Blog London

LondonLGBT badges

Welcome to the LGBT Blog London,

Londonlgbt wordpress site

The aim of this WordPress blog is to help network the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* communities of London. Work constructing the blog started on the 1st February, at the beginning of LGBT History Month 2016.

As we develop the blog, we hope to gather a lot of useful information together which we want to share in an open and transparent way; to raise awareness of the huge variety of events and activities taking place across London, to promote and celebrate diversity within our communities, to foster and improve community collaboration and cohesion, and develop better services and facilities where possible.

Facebook Page

We have set up a Facebook Community page LGBT Blog London which we hope will become a central LGBT information hub about everything that is happening across the London region. Our aim is to get as many lesbians, gay men, bisexual and trans* people and our straight allies to like and follow the page.

We are inviting a member from each of the borough LGBT groups and key LGBT  organisations to help us run the Facebook page, and become admins so they can post and share information about what is happening in their areas.

Already a number of boroughs have joined us.
