Thinking of standing for your parish?The November election is on the horizon

A guide for potential parish candidates
Step 1
Love your parish? Thinking about joining your Douzaine? Great!

Click the Gazette Officielle button below to find out what positions are up for election in your parish this year.
Step 2
Download our Guide to the Parish Elections Process. We'll take you step-by-step through what you need to do to stand for Douzenier or Constable.
Step 3
If you haven’t already, have a look through our 'Douzenier or Constable' section. You'll find a detailed description of the roles, plus videos of current parish officials talking about their experiences.
Step 4
Talk to the team at your local Constables Office or Douzaine Room. The parish clerk can tell you more about the positions are available in your area, give you the nomination forms (to be returned by 4pm on 26th October) and introduce you to a current member of the Douzaine, if you wish. Some parishes have the forms available for download on their website.
Step 5
Let Women in Public Life know! We're keen to support women who are thinking of standing in the November 4th parish elections.

We'll keep you informed, introduce you to others on the same journey, be there when you need someone to talk to, build your confidence and save you time.

Even if you are just at the very earliest stage, let us know and we'll get in touch for a no-obligation chat.
