Islanders choose electoral reform

Ballot paper
The most popular choice of election system will be put before the States

More than 3,000 people have completed a survey about how they would like to see politicians elected in Guernsey.

The questionnaire was delivered to every home in the island last month.

People were asked to choose one of four options - ranging from all States members elected on an island-wide basis to retained the status quo.

The survey is being carried out by the States Assembly and Constitution Committee ahead of the island's next election in 2012.

All four options include a four-year term of office and retaining the same number of deputies.

The consultation has now closed and the most popular choice will be put before the States.

The island's current population is about 65,000.
