Voters are being given a chance to suggest the names for the new parliamentary constituencies.
Twelve equal constituencies of two seats each are due to be created, as recommended by the independent Boundary Review Committee and agreed by Tynwald in June this year. They will replace the current mixture of three, two and one-seat constituencies.
There was an opportunity to suggest names as part of a public consultation by the Boundary Review Committee at the start of this year, and these were taken into account when the committee reported to the June Tynwald.
The suggested names are as follows: Ayre and Michael (a new north constituency), Ramsey, Garff (a new constituency comprising Laxey, Lonan and Maughold plus Onchan parish and Howstrake), Onchan (replacing the suggested name of Onchan Urban for the current Onchan constituency minus Onchan parish and Howstrake), Douglas West, Douglas Central, Douglas North and Douglas East, Middle (the current Middle constituency plus Santon), Malew, Arbory and Castletown (a new south constituency comprising Castletown plus Malew and Arbory), Rushen (a south west constituency comprising the current Rushen minus Arbory) and Glenfaba and Peel.
Further suggestions for names of the new constituencies can be made by emailing Ann.Craine@cso.gov.im no later than 5pm on October 7.
