|Email item||Print item||
The Electoral Commission has advised that those persons who, on the 31st March, 2016, were qualified to be registered as voters, of the importance of verifying that their name and particulars have been included in the revised electoral register published on the 27th April, 2016.
Persons who obtained Maltese Citizenship through naturalisation or registration and certified dual nationals are entitled to be registered as voters in this register if, on the 31st March, 2016, they had the necessary qualifications in accordance with the Constitution of Malta and the General Elections Act (Chap. 354). These persons are urged to verify their inclusion in this Electoral Register.
Any person whose name has not been included in this register, or whose particulars appearing in the Register need to be corrected, may appeal to the revising officer up to next Wednesday, the 18th of May, 2016, to have his/her name included in this register, notwithstanding that no prior application may have been made to the Commission for such purpose.
Persons intending to appeal to the Revising Officer may seek assistance at the Identity Cards Office, 28A, St Francis Square, Victoria, Gozo, or at the Electoral Office, Merchants Street, Valletta.
The Electoral Commission also advised that the general public can use the new on-line facility to check if they are registered as a voter in the April 2016 electoral register.
To utilise this facility please visit the Electoral Commission's website (www.electoral.gov.mt) under the "Publications" section and pressing the "Can I vote?" button.
