Monday 28 September 2020

More than 21,000 people have registered for postal voting for the General Election.

The figure dwarfs the almost 2,000 who registered for postal voting for the 2016 election, as the electorate prepare for island-wide voting.

Postal voting packs will be delivered this week to those who registered. Packs have already been sent to UK and overseas addresses. Those registered for postal voting are asked not to contact the election office unless they have not received their postal vote by Friday.

An animation will be published on the States of Guernsey's website and social media accounts shortly to explain how postal vote ballots need to be completed and returned.

Key information for postal voters includes:

Colette Falla, Registrar-General of Electors, said:

"It is a success story that so many people have opted to register for postal votes. This will naturally reduce demand at polling stations and help make the process as smooth as possible given the numbers involved. It is a significant logistical task to issue more than 21,000 postal voting forms and I'm pleased that this process has begun, with Guernsey Post ready to begin delivering them this week."
