Voting gets underway tomorrow to find a new St. Helier Deputy to fill the vacancy left in St Helier District 3/4 following the death of Deputy Richard Rondel in November 2018.
Polling stations will be open at Rouge Bouillon and First Tower Schools from 8 am to 8 pm. You can vote in the By-Election if you live in District 3/4, are aged over 16 and are registered to vote. If you are not sure which St. Helier district you live in, a full list is available on vote.je. Please bring photographic identification with you, such as your driving licence or passport.
To find out where your polling station is, or for more information about the By-Election, please visit vote.je.
Deputy Greffier Lisa Hart, who manages vote.je, urged residents living in St. Helier District 3/4 to come out and vote for their new Deputy. She said “If you live in the area then you have ten candidates to choose from. Historically turnouts for By-Elections are very low, so every single vote really can make a difference. Don’t let others choose your new Deputy on your behalf, make sure you vote!”
The count will take place at Rouge Bouillon School and it is expected that the result will be announced around 10pm. The full results will be available on vote.je.
The newly elected Deputy will be sworn in on Friday 1st March 2019 and will attend their first States meeting on Tuesday 12th March 2019.
