The General Election 2013 will be held this Wednesday, 17 July 2013.
Each voter will be able to select up to 12 candidates, from the 20 listed on the Ballot Paper. You do not have to use all 12 votes – you can just select your one favourite, or two or three – in fact any number up to 12. If you select more than 12, your Ballot Paper will be invalid, and none of your votes will be counted.
A green leaflet on the voting process, including the list of candidates, and examples of valid and invalid Ballot Papers can be found in the following outlets:
• The Public Library
• The Customer Service Centre
• Jamestown Spar
• A&D’s Mini Mart
• Half Tree Hollow Spar
• Phillip John’s
• Sandy Bay (Thorpe’s)
• Sandy Bay (Solomon & Company)
• Silver Hill (Solomon & Company)
• Longwood Supermarket
Polling Stations at the Levelwood, Harford, Jamestown, Blue Hill, Sandy Bay, Kingshurst and Half Tree Hollow Community Centres and at Judges’ Lodge, Alarm Forest, will be open from 10 am to 7pm, they will close promptly at 7pm.
Counting of votes will begin in the main hall at Prince Andrew School at approximately 8 pm – after which the results will be declared, with candidates and supporters in attendance.
