As we find new ways of working, it is likely that fewer of us will be coming in to the workplace every day, meaning that it may not be possible for all those who participate in the City’s unique worker franchise to vote in person on polling day on Thursday 24 March.
The Temple and Farringdon Together team want to encourage every resident and worker to exercise their democratic rights in this year’s City elections and would therefore encourage all electors to register for a postal vote, which can be delivered to your home, office, or another convenient UK address.
To apply for a postal vote, please go to the Corporation’s Speak for the City website, which will take you through the application process stage by stage:
Don’t forget you have until 9 March to apply for a new postal vote or to change the address to which you receive your existing postal ballot.
The City of London’s electoral services team has now confirmed that all ten of the Temple and Farringdon Together team are validly nominated to seek re-election as Common Councillors for the Ward of Farringdon Without in this year’s elections which are due to take place on 23/24 March 2022.
The Together team which has represented the Ward since March 2017, provides a united and experienced group of councillors for the largest electoral district in the City, with over 3,600 electors. The team members:
George Abrahams CC, Deputy John Absalom, Caroline Addy, Greg Lawrence CC, Deputy Edward Lord OBE, Paul Martinelli CC, Wendy Mead OBE CC, Ruby Sayed CC, Oliver Sells QC CC, and William Upton QC CC
include residents, practising barristers, part time Judicial Officer Holders, business leaders, and local campaigners, who bring a multitude of skills and understanding to what is a highly complex organisation.
Campaign Manager, Edward Lord, said: “I am certain that in the Together team we have an outstanding set of individuals who are able to represent the wide variety of interests in this most diverse area of the City of London.”
