Head of Digital and Public Engagement, Jenny O’Brien, said: “With polls opening in less than 24 hours, we want to remind Islanders that they can cast their vote between 8am and 8pm at their local polling station, the precise location of which can be easily checked by entering in your postcode to our constituency finder on Vote.je.
“As soon as the deadline to vote closes at 8pm, the count will begin. Keep an eye on Vote.je and social media channels, where the results of the elected candidates will be announced.”
Islanders that fall ill on 22 June 2022 and cannot make it to their polling station should contact their Parish Hall as soon as possible, who will send an official to you to take your vote.
