On 19 October Jersey will go to the polls to vote for Constables, Deputies and Senators on the same day for the first time.

There are 82 candidates up for one of the 34 seats available and 11 politicians, mostly Constables, have been returned unopposed.

Thirteen islanders put themselves forward for one of four senatorial seats.

There are also six Senators who are not up for election as they are halfway through their six year term of office.

Due to a reduction in the number of Senators from 12 to eight there are only four senatorial seats up for grabs in October, bringing the total of States members down to 51 from 53.

The parish of St Helier had a total of 23 candidates for 10 seats across the three districts.

There are 61,987 people registered to vote in the election on 19 October, that is up 12% on 2008.

The number of electors in each parish is up on 2008, with St Helier seeing an increase of about 3,000 on the previous elections.

  • Comment number 1.

    Can you add into the equation a) the total of people in 2008 eligible to vote (regardless of whether they then apply to get on the list) and the same for 2011. 12% is great news but we know the population has increased during that period so it is important to understand the figures against a baseline.
