London Borough Council Elections - 6 May 2010


With the aim of making the democratic process as transparent as possible to the London electorate, this report includes a great deal of detail on every aspect of the 2010 London Borough council general elections. No other single volume presents the full results and election statistics from the 32 London boroughs enabling the reader to analyse and compare the results across London in one place.

The report presents data for every candidate in every ward (excluding the City of London which operates on a different electoral model). Summaries are provided in the form of maps and tables, and to make comparisons easier, they mostly match those included in the 2006 report with a few useful additions.

Results of all council by-elections between the general elections in 2006 and 2010, as well as details of the elections in the three boroughs that directly elect a mayor, are also presented here. This is the latest report in a long series of council election reports dating back to 1964. Find other election reports at


The report is available in PDF format.
