Updated Register of Electors Published

In a Proclamation issued on Wednesday, 11 September 2019, Governor Dr Philip Rushbrook announced that a Bye-Election to fill the vacant seat on Legislative Council (following the resignation of Kylie Hercules on 31 August) would take place on Wednesday, 27 November 2019.

Following this, a window of opportunity was available to members of the public, who were not registered voters, to have their names added to the Register of Electors which came into force on 1 July 2019.

An updated 2019 Register of Electors has today been published in an Extraordinary Gazette. 

This Register is effective from 18 October 2019 and will be used in the forthcoming Bye-Election.

Only those persons who are named on the updated Register will be eligible to vote, or stand, in the Bye-Election which will take place on Wednesday, 27 November 2019, and only those who are 21 years and over can stand for election.

The updated Register of Electors for 2019 is available on the SHG website at: https://www.sainthelena.gov.sh/government-gazettes/.

Alternatively, hard copies of the updated Register will be available from the Assistant Registration Officers or from the following locations:
