Referendum on Guernsey's voting system: referendum leaflet to be delivered to every household

Share this page

On 10th October, the public will vote on how to elect their Deputies to the States in Guernsey's first ever referendum.

This week, every household will receive a leaflet providing information on the referendum. The leaflet provides all the information voters need to know to take part in the referendum including information about:

Deputy Roffey, President of the States' Assembly & Constitution Committee, said,

"The States agreed that the Committee should provide impartial and comparable information on each of the five options on the ballot paper. We have sent out this leaflet to provide this and other helpful information about the Electoral Roll, and how and where to vote, to ensure people know how to take part in this referendum.

The referendum presents the public with the opportunity to have their voices heard on how Deputies should be elected. I would strongly encourage everyone to take part and vote to determine their future electoral system.

If you are not on the Electoral Roll, you have until 4th October to sign up. Please visit the referendum page of the States of Guernsey website for information on how to do this, and also how to register for a postal vote should you wish to use this method of voting. Alternatively, you can pick up a form at Sir Charles Frossard House, the Guille Allès Library or the various Constables and Parish offices".

The video explaining how to vote in the referendum is available to view on the States of Guernsey YouTube channel, its Facebook and Twitter accounts and on www.gov.gg/referendum. From early September, it will also be shown in various States' buildings and the Guille Allès Library.
