Parliamentary elections were held in Guernsey on 23 April 2008.[1] 18,576 voters or 40.58% of the eligible population of 45,772 turned out and cast a total of 89,239 votes; there were 10 blank papers, 35 spoilt papers and on average 4.8 votes were cast. Of the 28 standing deputies all but two (Brian de Jersey and Wendy Morgan), were re-elected to the house; this means that 19 of the Deputies-Elect are new to the chamber. Five of the 12 candidates who had stood unsuccessfully in 2004 were elected in 2008.

The candidate who polled the most amount of votes was first time candidate Matt Fallaize standing in the Vale, who received 2,322 and becomes the youngest member of the house at 26.[2]
