**For information only: Nominations closed**.
The Parish of St Martin will be holding a parish by-election on Tuesday 13 July for a Douzenier, a Constable and a member of the School Committee.
The Douzenier will finish the term of Mary Collins, who has moved out of the parish (term ends Dec 2022), and the Constable will complete the term of John Bamford, who recently resigned (term ends Dec 2021). The School Committee role is short-term as well (Dec 2021).
Completing a term is a good way to test the water before standing for a full term at a future election.
St Martin’s currently has only one female Douzenier which means it has the lowest proportion of women of any parish in the Island. List of St Martin’s Douzaine members.
If you’re interested, pop into the Constables Office at the Parish Hall to find out more and ask for a nomination form – or call 238363. Nomination forms must be returned by 4pm on Friday 2 July. The nomination form just needs the signatures of two people who are on the electoral roll in St Martin’s.
The election is due to be held at a parish meeting in the St Martin’s Parish Hall at 7pm on Tuesday 13 July 2021.
There’s a full description of the roles of Douzenier and Constable here – including a video from Mary.
The parish election process is explained here.
