Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 02 September 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Following this year's election how much, including staff costs, was spent on the campaign to increase voter turnout and what, if any, criteria was used to determine value for money?
Information in relation to expenditure on the 2022 election is exempt from release under Article 36 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 as a report detailing such expenditure is intended for future publication by the States Greffe. This report will be made available on the vote.je website within 12 weeks of the date of the request.
It is not possible to provide a breakdown of staff time and costs as such information is not recorded and is therefore not held. Article 3 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 applies.
