A record number of candidates have volunteered to serve their local community as a Douzenier or Constable this year. Fantastic! – congratulations and thank you to them all.
Most parishes held their elections at their parish meetings on Wednesday 4th November 2020. Election results.
But St Peter Port and St Martin voted to ‘defer’ their elections so that everyone on the electoral roll in the parish could vote at a polling station, if they wished.
Their new election date is Wednesday 18th November 2020.
The States isn’t involved in parish elections so there’s no manifesto booklet or glossy website to help voters choose who to vote for.
To help fill the gap, we’ve created the simple information ‘hub’ below, including links to candidates’ leaflets and social media, any opportunities to meet them and opening hours of polling stations. Take a look, and make a note in your diary to vote on the 18th!

It is not possible to postal vote in a parish election. If you live in St Peter Port or St Martin, you must go to a designated polling station in your parish on Wednesday 18th November 2020 during the opening hours listed below.
Polling station officials will check that you are on the electoral roll and give you a ballot paper to fill out in a private booth. You’ll put the completed ballot paper in a secure ballot box to be counted when the polling station closes. The results will be announced at the end of the count.
