Count Me In: 24% of registered voters request postal vote

Friday 21 February 2020

Almost a quarter of people signed up to the Electoral Roll so far have opted for postal votes.

With close to 23,000 people now on the Electoral Roll, some 5,400 have requested to vote by post rather than in person at a polling station. Anyone can opt for a postal vote for the new Island-wide election, either to be sent to their registered address or to an alternative address if they are going to be off-island.

David Mullins, Lead Election Officer says:

"There are many advantages to voting by post. It means you can fill in your ballot paper from your own armchair and not worry about any of the time pressures of visiting a polling station. It makes the election more accessible for everyone, essentially bringing the democratic process into your living room."

Registered voters can opt for a postal vote via the website www.election2020.gg or by filling in a postal vote application form available from parish offices, Sir Charles Frossard House, the Guille-Alles Library or from the Election 2020 Office.

The Electoral Roll will stay open until 30 April 2020 and all eligible Islanders are being urged to sign up online or via the household registration form sent to all homes in December last year.

The Election 2020 Office can be reached by email elections@gov.gg or by calling 01481 747579.
