To help voters choose between the record number of candidates standing in the deferred parish elections, Women in Public Life has created a voter information ‘hub’ on its website at womeninpubliclife.gg.

Each candidate has an individual page giving her or his contact details, plus links to their leaflet and any social media accounts. The hub also lists the polling stations and will include any Meet The Candidate events organised by the parishes.

Deferred elections

At their parish meetings on 4th November, St Peter Port and St Martin’s parishioners voted to defer their elections so that all eligible voters could take part, if they wish.

The new election date is Wednesday 18th November 2020 and polling stations will be set up at the St Martin’s Parish Hall for St Martin’s and the Constables Office and Beau Sejour for St Peter Port from 10am to 8pm.

Record levels of interest

Shelaine Green, Chair of Women in Public Life, said: “The States aren’t involved in the parish elections so there won’t be a manifesto booklet or a glossy website that parishioners can look through. But with so much interest this year, we decided to help voters out by creating a simple information ‘hub’ on our own website. Our thanks to all the candidates who have been sending us their contact details and campaign materials.

“If you live in St Peter Port or St Martin’s, please take a look and vote on Wednesday 18th November. We all faithfully pay hundreds of pounds in parish rates each year, it’s important that we take the time to choose who spends them.”
