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. IoD Jersey is remaining entirely neutral and impartial in this regard and is not supportive of any individuals or party/parties.

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 grateful if businesses can assist with this campaign by displaying one or more of the attached posters in a prominent place, for the benefit of their employees and encouraging them to vote in the next election. The importance of doing so is highlighted by those who kindly took part in some recent interviews which Slingshot Films undertook for IoD Jersey.

Standing for Election

If you are interested in standing, it is 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/

Voting in Jersey

Every time the States Assembly meets, it makes decisions that affect all of us on a day-to-day basis and for many years ahead. The starting point is making sure that the States Members who are making these decisions share your point of view, and will represent what you want life in Jersey to look like. 

To be eligible to vote, you need to be over the age of 16. You also need to have lived in Jersey continuously for the last 2 years or have lived in Jersey for the last 6 months, plus another 5 years.

All voters need to register by 5pm on 10 May 2022 by visiting vote​.je/​r​e​g​ister.

You can either vote on 22 June at your designated polling station, or in advance by post or by attending a pre-poll station. 

If you are attending a pre-poll station, you will need to take photographic identification.
