Pre-Poll Voting Open from Monday 30th April

Friday 27 April 09:28

Pre-Poll voting will open at St. Paul’s Centre in St. Helier from 8.30 a.m. on Monday 30th April for anyone who wants to vote in the 2 weeks leading up to election day.

Deputy Greffier Lisa Hart, who manages, said she was looking forward to pre-poll voting getting underway. She said: “Islanders don’t need a specific reason to pre-poll vote. If you registered before 9th April, then you can simply go along to St. Paul’s Centre any time during the working week between 8.30 and 5.15 to cast your vote. Or, if it is more convenient, you can visit one of the out-of-town pre-poll voting stations on a Saturday between 10am and 1pm. Please bring photographic identification with you, such as your driving licence or passport.”

St Paul’s Centre in New Street, St Helier will be open from 8.30am to 5.15pm Monday 30th April until 2pm on Monday 14th May 2018. Closed Bank Holiday Monday 7th May and Liberation Day Wednesday 9th May 2018. Weekend pre-poll stations will also be available for all Islanders at Trinity Youth Centre from 10am-1pm on Saturday 5th May 2018 and Communicare, St Brelade from 10am-1pm on Saturday 12th May 2018.

“We all lead busy lives and it’s not always easy to get to your Parish Hall or district polling station on election day.” Lisa said “Pre-poll allows everyone to vote in one place. No matter where you live you can vote at St Paul’s before May 16th if that suits you better – but you must have been registered to vote before 9th April!”

Islanders will have now received the Candidates’ Manifestos document which was circulated to 47,000 households from 23rd April and spare copies are available from the States Greffe, Morier House. Unfortunately there were a couple of mistakes in the booklet and Islanders living in St Lawrence should note that they are able to elect two Deputies not one as stated, whilst St Saviour District 3 residents can choose one Deputy rather than two.

It is not too late to register if you have yet to do so. If you are 16 or over and have lived in Jersey for either the last 2 years, or the last 6 months (plus any other period(s) which total 5 years) then you can register to vote in the election, irrespective of your nationality. Registration is now very easy - you can access the online register via the My Parish Online website or through a link on

Islanders can also turn out to vote on election day on Wednesday 16th May 2018 when polling stations will be open across the Island from 8 am to 8 pm. To find out where your polling station is, or for more information about this year’s elections, please visit

“When you vote, the ballot papers will be different colours, Senators are white, Connétables are blue and Deputies are green. You do not have to use all of your votes. You can vote for just one candidate if you wish. Jersey has such a small population that every single vote really can make a difference” Lisa said. “Don’t let others choose on your behalf, make sure you vote!”
