Election 2020

The Guernsey General Election will take place on Wednesday, 7 October 2020.

Islanders who wish to vote in October 2020 must be registered on the Electoral Roll by 21 August 2020.

The way we choose our Deputies is changing

38 Deputies. 38 good reasons to vote.

Our 2020 General Election will be significantly different from previous years. The Island will be one electoral district and electors will vote on an Island-wide basis. This means there will be a greater choice of candidates, but also some changes in how voting takes place.

All registered voters will be able to vote by post

You can opt for a postal vote even if you are not going to be away from the Island on polling day. Choosing a postal vote will give you plenty of time to fill in your ballot paper at home rather than in a polling booth. The ballot paper can be posted back or, if you have missed the postal vote deadline, you can take your postal ballot to a polling station on any polling day.
