Here at GLA Conservatives we are working hard and are very excited for the coming 2012 London Elections. Many people are swept up in the Mayoral Election and we would not want people to forget about something equalily important: the 2012 London Assembly election. It may seem somewhat complicated to vote in the Assembly elections, but it is not and we will show you how. If you are a registered voter we can show you how to join in and vote Conservative on May 3.

Londonwide Member – Orange Ballot
This ballot is to vote for the Conservative Londonwide members. The GLA currently has 3 Londonwide members and they are as follows;
This ballot attempts to represent London by total population not by region; On this ballot just choose the Conservative Party, there is no second choice on this ballot so ensure you only make one tick.
This orange ballot uses quite a complicated system to calculate who gets these Londonwide seats, but all you have to do is vote for the party you wish to win; If the calculations work out in our favour we can get a good piece of the 11 possible Londonwide seats. If you would like to know more check the londonelects.org.uk website.
In short, one tick on the yellow ballot for your local members, and one tick on the orange ballot for the conservative party. An easy way to make a better London Assembly and better London.
