Guernsey States reject electronic voting

Guernsey politicians have voted against the introduction of an electronic voting system.

The States Assembly and Constitution Committee had suggested using voting buttons in place of the current roll-call recorded vote.

Deputies voted 23-21, with one abstention, against the proposal.

During the debate some deputies argued the move would not save time or make deputies more accountable to the public.
