General elections are scheduled to take place in Anguilla on 29 June 2020.[1] Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an Order in Council was made to allow the elections to be postponed until 11 September at the latest.[2] However it was not invoked.

Electoral system[edit source | edit]

The 11-seat of the House of Assembly consist of seven members elected in single-member constituencies by first-past-the-post voting, and four at-large members elected from the entire island by single non-transferable vote.[3] Voters may only vote for one candidate in the at-large seats,[3] which replaced four appointees.[4] Voters must be at least 18 years old, whilst candidates must be at least 21.[4]

Campaign[edit source | edit]

The ruling Anguilla United Front (which won six of the seven elected seats in 2015) nominated a full slate of eleven candidates in November 2019.[5] The opposition Anguilla Progressive Movement also nominated eleven candidates in December 2019.[6]
