Senatorial by-election costs (FOI)

Senatorial by-election costs (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 09 September 2016.


Please can you provide a breakdown of all the costs involved in holding the Senatorial by-election? Please include specific details of the cost of hiring a production crew to film all the hustings, the cost to each parish in staging the hustings and holding the election, the cost to the States Assembly in administration.


Initial costs incurred by the States Greffe in relation to the Senatorial by-election are listed below:

​Website design and hosting, campaign design, social media and management ​£8,500
​Leaflets and candidate manifestos, including distribution costs to all households £11,500
​Filming £12,000


A number of other costs will be incurred by both the States Greffe and Judicial Greffe as a result of the Senatorial by-election, but full details of these costs will not be known until all expense claims and invoices have been submitted and processed. 

We would therefore advise that you submit another Freedom of Information request in late February 2017 when all costs should be finalised.

For information, costs still to be finalised include:

  • printing and stationery
  • hired services (staff)
  • hire of premises (polling stations and hustings)
  • travel expenses
  • provisions
  • postage
  • telephone 
  • advertising expenses
  • other administrative expenses (sound systems for the hustings etc)
