GENERAL ELECTION 2013
There will be one Election on Wednesday 17 July 2013, to elect 12 Councillors to represent the whole Island. This means that all the candidates’ names will all on one Ballot Paper.
Each voter will be able to select up to 12 candidates. But 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.
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 7 pm.
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.
