Can we help each other out, even if we’re not in a party?

Yes. Candidates have always worked together at previous elections, and there is no reason why this one should be different. If you’re in a Party, then there are particular rules about Party spending which you will need to follow. If you are an independent candidate, working together with other candidates, then just remember that you need to keep track of your expenses, and that you are still bound by the individual candidate spending limit of £6,000.

Good luck! And try to enjoy the experience as much as you can – there’s nothing else quite like it, and you’ll learn so much from it, whatever happens on Election Day. Thank you for having the courage to step up and do something for Guernsey.
