The time to vote is Thursday 3rd May!
These elections are held every 4 years and they decide who runs London!
They decide how our public transport runs, how we live, our safety and London’s culture, such as theatre and nightlife.
The favourites (people most likely to win or be elected) are Boris Johnson (left) and Ken Livingstone (right).
If you’re an EU or Commonwealth citizen, and you’re registered to vote, then you can vote this Thursday.
On Friday the 4th of May, they will count the votes. This will be covered by the news and you can also find a lot of information online.

Tips From the Teachers
Emma has taught in many places around the world, and she’s learning Portuguese.
"When I’m in Portugal, I like to listen to conversa-tions around me. I like to people-watch, like when I’m sitting on a bench, or at a café in a city.
"It’s great for picking up really natural language. Sometimes I have to ask my teachers or friend what the phrases mean, though!"
