Alderney gets more time to register for vote

Posted Mon 3rd November 2008 at 09:30

Islanders are being given more time to register for the vote.

The electorate was originally given until October 15 to sign up for three upcoming polls.

However, chief executive David Jeremiah has used a provision in the law to alter the date by which residents have to subscribe to the electoral roll.

Those wishing to vote in the Presidential election now have until November 3, while those intending to vote in the end of year elections, where five seats on the States will be up for grabs, have until November 17.

Islanders wanting to vote in the plebiscite, which elects two States members to act as Alderney's representatives in Guernsey, have until November 28.

President Sir Norman Browse reiterated the fact that Alderney's residents must sign up to the electoral roll every three years. He said registering once did not guarantee you a vote for life and that it was embarrassing for all concerned when a person arrives at the Island Hall on polling day only to be told they are ineligible to vote.

At its October meeting, the States unanimously agreed to hold the Presidential election on November 22. The island's politicians also ratified plans to hold the ordinary elections on December 6 and plebiscite on December 8.
