Election 2025: Campaign begins early with new website and events for potential candidates

Share this page

Tuesday 02 April 2024 now available

The new website for the General Election 2025 is now available, at

The site is being made available more than a year ahead of the election itself in order to provide early and additional support and information to people who are considering whether or not they wish to stand.

The content on the election website today is focused at providing people with information on the different roles and responsibilities of a Deputy and the structure of the States of Guernsey, as well as more general information such as the time commitment involved, engaging with the community, the States Members' Code of Conduct, and much more.

During the run-up to the election, which will be held in June 2025, more content will be added to the website, including details of events as well as specific information on the rules and requirements for registering as a candidate, campaigning in the election, signing onto the electoral roll, voting information and candidate manifestos.


Meet and Greet drop-in events for potential candidates

Alongside the early launch of the website, two events are being held for people already thinking about putting themselves forward as candidates.

Two informal 'meet and greet' drop-in events are being held, on the 16 April and 20 April, where people can come and speak with current States Members to ask any questions they may have, to help inform their decisions about standing:

16 April 5pm - 8.30pm: Beau Sejour concourse

20 April 10am - 1pm: St James café


Deputy Carl Meerveld, President of the States Assembly & Constitution Committee, said:

"I am very pleased that the website for the General Election 2025 is now live.  This early launch, coupled with the events we are holding, will help people who are having to weigh up what is a very big decision.  There's no one-size-fits-all approach to being a Deputy and people have different experiences, but the more we can do to give people a sense of what is involved, the better. 

It is an extremely challenging role, but one that is essential to the success of our island, and one that can be very rewarding.  It can also impact your professional and personal life in a number of ways, and it is better to begin that political journey with your eyes open so you are as ready as possible when you ultimately put your name forward and ask the community to support you with their vote."
