One year to the election!

The next general election in Guernsey will be held on Wednesday 18 June 2025 – exactly one year from now.

Talk to us if you are thinking of standing – we can help!

The Guernsey Press, BBC Guernsey and Bailiwick Express all ran stories on 18 June 2024 about the upcoming election, focusing on who is re-standing, who’s retiring and what the election spending rules could be.

Here’s the Guernsey Press list of runners and retirees:


BBC Guernsey
published a similar list and interviewed Deputy Roffey who is one of the retirees: A quarter of deputies plan to stand again in 2025. BBC Guernsey has also launched an election podcast.

Bailiwick Express discussed who was standing but also asked deputies about their achievements and experiences in office: Tribalism and indecision cited as low points of this political term.

It was a bumper edition today for the Guernsey Press, with four pages dedicated to election news:
