Don't forget to vote today.
Two choices for mayor, one choice for GLA rep for Lewisham & Greenwich, and another for the London wide party list system.
Polling stations are open until 10pm tonight, but don't leave it to the last minute!

I found the guardian's policy comparison test useful:

We need to be clear that these creatures are getting our vote because of their policies, not their personalities, and then we need to hold them to these policies.

Boris is the only one with any sort of personality but I didnt vote for him. Unfortunately it comes down to the usual protest voting that seems to happen between general elections. If you vote for an unknown candidate because they sound interesting then that will dilute the vote of most reasonable people and Boris will get in.

Roz - that's not quite true if you use your second vote wisely. If the person in your first vote does not make the top two and your second choice is in the top two, then that vote will be counted.
