Croydon voters are going to the polls today in an election that could see the election of a brand new mayor for the city of nearly nine million. 

Happening on the same day are elections for the Greater London Assembly election, which elects which individuals will oversee and scrutinise the Mayor’s policies.

Alongside these important elections, some Londoners will be eligible to vote in some local by-elections which will determine who will represent their ward on the local council.

These by-elections are triggered when a councillor retires or resigns from the Council.

Residents of Croydon’s Woodside and Parkhill & Whitgift wards will be eligible to vote for local new councillors.

These by-elections come following the resignation of Labour’s Mike Bonello from his Woodside seat in January and Tory Jade Appleton’s resignation as Park Hill and Whitgift ward councillor in March.

The new Park Hill and Whitgift councillor will serve as the ward’s sole representative on the Conservative-run council. The winner of the Woodside election will join Labour’s incumbents Amy Foster and Brigitte Graham. 

The full list of candidates for Park Hill and Whitgift are as follows:

James Cork (Green Party)

Melanie Dorothea Felten (Labour)

Ben Goldstone (Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition)

Andrew Robert Prince (Local Conservatives)

Mark Robin Lionel Samuel (Independent)

The full list of candidates for Woodside are as follows:

Titlope Adeoye (Local Conservatives)

Nicholas Vince (Green Party)

Jahir Hussain (Liberal Democrats)

Jessica Rich (Labour)

Shane Sobers (Taking the Initiative Party)

Michelle Wall (Trade Union and Socialist Coalition) 

There will be several polling stations open in each ward, all of which will be open from 7 am to 10 pm. A full list of them can be found below:
