Voter hub set up ahead of parish elections


Women in Public Life has created a voter information hub to help parishioners choose between the record number of candidates standing in the St Peter Port and St Martin's parish elections.

Both parishes have decided to defer their elections until 18 November so that all eligible voters can take part.

Polling stations will be set up at St Martin's Parish Hall for St Martin's and the Constables Office and Beau Sejour for St Peter Port from 10:00 until 20:00.

Each candidate has an individual page on the Women in Public Life website, giving their contact details along with links to their leaflet and any social media accounts. The hub also lists the polling stations and any Meet the Candidates events organised by the parishes.

"The States aren't involved in the parish elections so there won't be a manifesto booklet or a glossy website that parishioners can look through," said Chair of the organisation, Shelaine Green. "But with so much interest this year, we decided to help voters out by creating a simple information hub on our own website.

"If you live in St Peter Port or St Martin's, please take a look and go to your polling station on Wednesday 18 November. We all faithfully pay hundreds of pounds in parish rates each year, it's important that we take the time to choose who spends them."

Women in Public Life is a group of local volunteers who aim to inspire the women of Guernsey to stand for a variety of roles in public office.
