Like most other small democracies, Jersey uses a plurality electoral system. It uses single-member plurality (also known as ‘first past the post’) to elect the Connstables and the Deputies in some parishes and districts. It uses multi-member plurality (also known as the ‘block vote’) to elect the remaining Deputies and all of the Senators.
