- Establish a States Assembly made up of one category of elected States Member.
- Establish an independent Boundaries Commission to determine the distribution of States Members based on population.
- Provide facilities to enable Deputies to set up constituency offices to improve engagement in the communities they represent.
Reform Jersey believes that every voter should have an equal vote no matter what part of the Island they live in, and that our system should be simple and user-friendly.
We will make our voting system simpler and fairer by establishing a States Assembly made up of one category of elected member, elected in equal-sized constituencies. We will work across the Assembly to bring forward a proposition to achieve this, whilst addressing the concerns that some may have with the Constables no longer automatically being States Members. An independent Boundaries Commission will ensure that the distribution of members is equitable.
We will improve access to voting by expanding access to polling stations across the Island, making voter registration automatic and introducing the ability to vote online. We will pick up the work which began during this term of office to introduce political education in schools, but which was disrupted due to the pandemic.
Elected members should always make themselves accessible to their constituents. We will support provisions being put in place to enable Deputies to set up constituency offices to support casework and engagement in the communities they represent.
