Over 1,000 responses have been received to date to the States' Assembly & Constitution Committee's questionnaire asking how people would like to receive information from the States of Guernsey about candidates in the lead up to the June 2020 General Election.
The President of the States' Assembly & Constitution Committee, Deputy Neil Inder, said:
"We are really pleased to receive such a positive response to our questionnaire. We really want to hear how voters want us to provide them with information about candidates in the lead up to the Election to help us decide our next steps. The questionnaire will close on 14th August so everyone who has not had the opportunity to respond yet still has time to do so".
The questionnaire is available online www.gov.gg/election2020consult and on request in paper copy from the Committee by calling on 01481 749526.
There are a number of options that the States of Guernsey could provide to assist voters and candidates. These might include:
- the production of a 'combined manifesto booklet' that incorporates all of the candidate manifestos into one document; and
- the creation of video and audio shorts for candidates to broadcast their message; and
- enabling the general public to submit questions to candidates online
The questionnaire is your opportunity to give feedback as to how you would like to receive information from the States of Guernsey about candidates to guide what the Committee will look to produce.
