From 1st March 2018, you can register on-line on the My Parish Online website to make sure that your name is on the electoral register in your parish or district so that you will be able to vote in the elections on 16th May 2018.
If you want to vote, you need to be registered on the electoral register. 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 vote in the election, irrespective of your nationality.
You have until noon on Monday 9th April 2018 to make sure that you are on the main electoral register and until Wednesday 9th May 2018 to be on the supplementary register.
One of the benefits of being on the main electoral register is that you will be able to vote before election day by pre-poll, which will be open at St. Paul’s Gate from Monday 30th April until 2pm on Monday 14th May (8.30 a.m. to 5.15 p.m. and closed on Bank Holiday Monday 7th May and Liberation Day). This makes it easier for those who perhaps work in town who may not be able to get to their Parish polling stations on election day. There will also be out of town pre-poll available at Communicare and Trinity on Saturday 5th and Saturday 12th May. See vote.je for more details.
The Connétable of St. Clement, Len Norman, the Chairman of the Privileges and Procedures Committee said: “This is an exciting step forward as we move towards automatic registration. I have tried out the new on-line registration system myself and found it quick and easy to use. I hope that those people who have access to the internet will give it a go!”
