General elections were held 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]

The 13-member House of Assembly consists of seven members elected in single-member constituencies by first-past-the-post voting, four at-large members elected from the entire island by plurality at-large voting and two ex officio members.[3][4] Voters may vote up to four candidates in the at-large seats, which replaced two appointees.[5] Voters must be at least 18 years old, whilst candidates must be at least 21.[5]

Endorsements[edit]

For Dee-Ann Kentish-Rogers (Anguilla Progressive Movement candidate in Valley South):[6]

For Haydn Hughes (Anguilla Progressive Movement candidate in Road South):[7]

Campaign[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.[8] The opposition Anguilla Progressive Movement also nominated eleven candidates in December 2019.[9]
