The deadline for submitting Nominations for the 12 March Bye-Election is fast approaching. The deadline is Wednesday 26 February at 12 Noon and all Nominations should be delivered within this time to Returning Officer, Mrs Gillian Francis at the Castle, Jamestown.

This means that you have just over a week to nominate a Candidate to fill the vacant seat on Legislative Council, following the resignation of Tony Green in December 2013.

Persons named on the Register of Electors dated 7 February 2014 and over the age of 21 years are eligible to stand for Legislative Council. Do not leave it until the last minute to submit your Nomination – the forms will need to be checked by the Returning Officer and you should give yourself enough time to make any corrections if the form has not been properly completed. Remember – Nomination forms are available from any of the Assistant Registration Officers in the different districts around the Island who can also provide assistance when completing forms.

Names of Assistant Registration Officers were printed in last week’s newspapers. Alternatively, further details on nominating candidates and the Bye-Election can be obtained from Registration and Returning Officer Gillian Francis on telephone numbers 22470 or 22314, or via email:

If more than one valid Nomination is received, a Poll will be held on 12 March 2014. Full details on how to make a Nomination for the upcoming Bye-Election were also published in last week’s newspapers.
