It is not possible to postal vote in a parish election. If you live in St Peter Port and are on the electoral roll, you must go to one of the designated polling stations in your parish on Wednesday 16 November between 10am and 8pm.
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 later that evening at the Constables Office in Lefebvre Street.
If you are not currently on the electoral roll, it is too late to be included for this election. But fill in the form now to make sure you can vote next year. To check whether you are on the roll, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
