The Provisional Register of Electors was published on Monday, 9 May 2022.
Members of the public now have up until Tuesday, 24 May 2022, to make any amendments to the Register to ensure that the final version, that will be effective from 1 July 2022, is as up-to-date and accurate as possible.
Eligible persons can:
- Apply to amend any of their personal details which may be out of date. For example, they may have changed their name since they last applied to be included on the Register, or may now live in a different Electoral District and would like to change their address
- Amend the Register to enable voting in a different district from that in which you reside. For example: an eligible person may live in Longwood and work in Jamestown, so when there is an election, it may be more convenient for them to vote in Jamestown during the working day
- Apply to include their name in the Register. Persons eligible to be registered must: (a) Have St Helenian Status as defined in the Immigration Ordinance, 2011; and (b) be 17 years of age or older with St Helena as their ordinary place of residence
- Apply to remove their name, or the name of someone who has died or left the Island or who might be no longer eligible for inclusion in the Register.
