VOTERS must have their say today if they want to change Guernsey’s government, islanders have said.
Sixty-three islanders were approached in the High Street by the Guernsey Press yesterday and asked if they would be voting.
The results found that just over two-thirds, 43, were planning to go to the polls.
Retired guest-house worker Wendy Clamp, 69, said she would be choosing from candidates in St Peter Port North.
‘It is very important to have a say in the working of the island,’ she said.
Retired civil servant Jean Chambers agreed. ‘If I vote, it means I can complain about them,’ she said. ‘If you don’t vote, then you can’t complain.’
