This booklet must be sent to all electors by law. Look out for yours in the post. The producer is Dawn Carter-McDonald, the Returning Officer. The booklet contains an election address, or statement, from all those candidates for Mayor who chose to be included.
The content is the responsibility of the candidates themselves, provided they follow legal requirements, and the views expressed are their own. Their names and details appear in random order – drawing lots determines the order they appear in. This booklet also includes information on how to vote.
All electors must be 18 years of age on or before Thursday 9 November 2023.
You need to be on the Hackney Register of Electors to vote. If you’re not registered, you can’t vote.
Registered British, Commonwealth, Irish, and European Union citizens can vote. British overseas electors cannot vote.
You should register to vote if you have:
- turned 18 on or before Thursday 9 November 2023
- never registered before
- moved house recently – if you’re a student, make sure you’re registered at the correct address
- recently changed your name
To vote in this election you must register to vote before midnight on Tuesday 24 October 2023. To register, see Register to vote.
