When are Elections held?
Elections are held to elect Parish officers and to elect members of the States Assembly.
A public election is held to elect:
- the Connétable of each Parish; and
- Deputies for each constituency (a group of two or three Parishes, or each of the Parishes of St Brelade, St Clement and St Saviour or one of three areas within the Parish of St Helier (Central, North or South)). From June 2022 Deputies will represent one of 9 constituencies.
Parish elections are held to elect the Centeniers and the Procureurs du Bien Public of each Parish.
Dates of forthcoming elections will be advertised on the Parish website, the Church notice box, the Jersey Gazette (online) and also on vote.je.
The next Elections for Connétables and Deputies will be held in 2026.
