GENERAL ELECTION 2013
Are you on the Register of
Electors? If not, you will not be eligible to stand for election, or to vote.
If you want to take part, the
first step is to ensure that your name is on the Register. A new ‘Provisional
Register’ will be published early in May, and there will be an opportunity,
then, for names to be added or removed (or for other changes, such as Electoral
District, to be made). Look out for the publicity about this process.
If you want to add your name, or
remove the name of someone who had died or left the Island, please take a
little time to complete the simple application form, which will be available
from The Castle or the Customer Service Centre, or from Assistant Registration
Officers in the Electoral Districts .
Use your democratic rights –
ensure you are registered to vote!
Those eligible to vote must be 18
years or older, have St Helenian status, or be a spouse/life partner of someone
who has that status, and must ordinarily reside on St Helena.
The date for the 2013 General
Election has yet to be set – but it will take place during July 2013. Further
details will follow shortly.
