Jersey Election 2022

#Standforjsy
#Voteforjsy

There are many challenges ahead in a fast-changing world post-Brexit and post-pandemic, and as the impact of global warming increases. It is imperative that, now more than ever, we work together as an Island to build back better and have a clear long-term vision for the Island.

Prior to the next election in 2022, IoD Jersey has therefore launched an important campaign, the objectives of which are two-fold:-

1. To encourage a range of diverse, experienced and high calibre candidates to stand in the next election. This is to help ensure an environment where businesses can thrive for the sake of our Island and the future of its economy, young people and our lifestyles.

2. To work together to engage a wider and more representative pool of voters to exercise their right to do so.

Our focus

IoD Jersey wishes to focus not only on the short-term measures but on ensuring a clear long-term vision for the Island, as helpfully set out in the recent paper published by the independent Economic Council entitled “New Perspectives” which focuses on innovation, entrepreneurialism, technology, sustainability, education and regeneration.

Current supporters

IoD Jersey is very grateful for the considerable support which has already been shown for the campaign from Jersey Finance, Jersey Business, Leadership Jersey, Lean In Jersey, the Diversity Network, the Jersey Good Business Charter, the local media and many other stakeholders.

How can you support the campaign?

IoD Jersey would be very grateful if businesses and individuals can help with this campaign. It is looking for two types of support:-

1. Businesses that can assist in disseminating the campaign assets to their workforce and spread the word to encourage others to vote and stand, and/or

2. Those who may be able to offer sponsorship for the ongoing running costs of the year-long campaign. This is so as to ensure Island-wide extensive coverage and engagement through print, broadcast and digital channels, as IoD Jersey is a not-for-profit organisation with approximately 60 volunteers.

Sponsorship Packages - There are a number of sponsorship packages available for both small, medium and large donations. It is completely up to individuals/organisations if they would like to remain anonymous as a sponsor or engage more visibly in the campaign.

Standing for Election

You can stand for election as a Deputy or Connetable. You will need to complete a nomination form and a declaration of convictions.

It’s likely you’ll have lots of questions such as How will standing for election affect my current job?’, Can I stand for election if I wasn’t born in Jersey?’, Is there support for me if I stand for election?’ — all these questions and more are answered on the official election website here: https://​www​.vote​.je/​s​t​a​n​d​i​n​g​-​i​n​-​t​h​e​-​2022​-​g​e​n​e​r​a​l​-​e​l​e​c​tion/
