The next Guernsey General Election will

The role of “People's Deputy” is an honour and a responsibility. It requires preparation, dedication and cooperation.
The States of Guernsey has prepared this site to help anyone considering standing for Election, by providing information on eligibility to stand, how our government works, the roles and responsibilities of a Deputy, and what successful candidates can expect, once they take office. Further information including how to stand, what is involved in campaigning, and details of upcoming events, will also be provided on this site in due course.
