Croydon Mayor Referendum: 7 October 2021

There will be a referendum in Croydon on 7 October 2021 where every resident of Croydon will have a vote on whether they want to stick with the current system of electing Croydon council or change to a system with an executive Mayor, directly elected by every voter in Croydon.
