How to vote

Voting in person

If you are voting in person (either at pre-poll – 13-17 June – or on polling day – 22 June), you will need to take photographic identification, like a driving licence or a passport.

Staff will mark your name off on the electoral register and give you your ballot papers. You will then be able to go to the voting booth and cast your vote by putting an ‘x’ beside the name of the candidate you want to vote for. You will be asked to place your ballot papers into the ballot box.

Pre-poll

Voters from any Parish or constituency can vote the week before the election at St Paul’s Centre, St Paul’s Gate, New Street, St Helier.

Pre-poll will be open from 8.30am to 5pm from Monday 13 June – Thursday 16 June and from 8.30am until 4pm on Friday 17 June 2022.

Voting on Election Day

If you registered at any point before midday on Wednesday 15 June, you can vote on Election Day: Wednesday 22 June at your local polling station, which will be open from 8am to 8pm.

Vote by post

To vote by post you will need to follow these 4 steps:

  1. You will need to download, print and fill out the postal voting application form
  2. You will need to return your signed form to the Judicial Greffe between Monday 4 April and 12 noon on Wednesday 1 June. You can do this either by email or post.
    • Email here as a PDF. Please note that JPEGs (photographs) of the form cannot be accepted. You can download a free PDF scanner app through the Google Play Store or on the App Store
    • Post to: Mrs Nicola Southouse, Postal & Pre-Poll Voting Manager, Judicial Greffe, Royal Court House, Royal Square, St Helier, JE1 1JG.
    • Your ballot paper(s) will be sent to you with a prepaid envelope around 28 May (10 days after the election candidates are announced).
  3. Once you have received your ballot papers, the sealed envelope containing the completed ballot papers and other documentation must be returned to the Judicial Greffe by no later than 12 noon on Wednesday 22 June, 2022, in order for the vote to be included in the count.
