* Don't lose your voice - register to vote

The European elections are taking place on Thursday 4 June - are you ready to have your say?

One in five Londoners, that's over 1 million people, who are eligible to vote may not register in time. If you're one of those people, you could miss your chance to choose who represents you and your city in Europe.

The European Parliament makes decisions that have a direct impact on every Londoner. Crucial legislation on a vast range of issues, from air pollution and climate change to rights at work and asylum, is set at the European level.

All UK, EU and Commonwealth citizens living in London are eligible to vote, but you must be registered on the electoral role. The deadline for registering is Tuesday 19 May. For advice and information visit or call 020 7271 0500.

You need to vote to have a voice - make sure nothing stops you.
