City of London Elections 2022

In March 2022, elections will be held across the Square Mile to decide who will represent City workers and residents for the next three years.

As the City works to rebuild from the pandemic, now is your chance to help shape its future.


The City of London Corporation runs the Square Mile and will hold elections in March 2022. Not only do we look after local services such as roads, rubbish collection, planning and the police - we also support and promote City businesses and ensure this remains one of the best places to live, work and visit in the world.

The election process

The City is divided into 25 wards, small electoral districts, each with a number of Common Councillors and one Alderman. There are 125 elected members of the City of London Corporation in total, who look after local services in the City and beyond, and serve as the representative voice of City businesses here and around the world. Those registered by 16th December 2021 will be able to vote for the City's Common Councillors in March 2022. These elections are held by ‘first past the post’ and you will have the same number of votes as councillors you are electing, e.g. three votes in a three-member ward. If there is a vacancy for an Alderman in your ward next year, you will also have one vote in that election.
