Cities find out if they'll get elected mayors

  • 4 May 2012

Cities across England have been finding out whether they'll be getting an elected mayor of their own.

People in ten cities have been voting on this, including those in Bristol, who voted yes, and Manchester, who said no.

In London there's already an elected mayor and currently, Boris Johnson holds that position.

But Londoners are waiting for the results of their vote to see if he'll continue as mayor, or if Ken Livingston will get the job instead.

The elected mayor takes on the responsibilities normally held by the council.
