Could low turnout lead to changes?
24/11/2005 - 11:08

It's thought the low turnout at last night's Deputies Election could force another review of the electoral system.

Only a third of those registered to vote decided to do so - a drop from 2002. Channel Island political expert Adrian Lee from the University of Plymouth believes the result is likely to increase demands for a general election in 2008.

Tell us what you think could be done to solve the voter apathy problem in our message boards.

Maybe more people would vote if you had to do it via telephone, and calls cost £1 per min...

I note that the electorate does not always put brains high up on the list of attributes for policians. And tell me why did they reject the parties at the Senatorials and then vote so many ex party candidates in as deputies?

Disgraceful turnout for the polls accross the island. The first to moan about problems will no doubtably be those who didnt or are not registered to vote.

James Perris
What a sad night, the three most qualified and able candidates, Jerry Dorey, Darius Pearce and Barry Shelton all failing to find a seat. No wonder no one bothers to vote in these elections, nice guys finish first and only at the expense of Jersey's future. When will the people of Jersey learn that being a politician requires a bit of intelligence?

Carly Tonner
II would like to say a well done to Judy Martin for coming through and returning soon. Good luck in the future.
