Residents in Europe's last feudal state would back constitutional 'one person, one vote' reforms, a poll has found.
There are two options for reforming the island's government
Sark's 450 residents were asked if they want the island's 16th Century system of government scrapped or adapted.
The governing body, the Chief Pleas, held the ballot after failing to decide on reforms and said they would consider the result if there was a 20% majority.
The poll found 50 people more - a 27% majority - favoured change, with 184 people wanting the current system.
A total of 418 valid results were counted, with 234 people voting for reforms.
The Channel Island of Sark has to change its laws to comply with European human rights legislation.
Owners of the island's 40 tenements (divisions of land) currently have an automatic seat in government and islanders choose 12 people's deputies.
The Chief Pleas now has to consider the matter.
