Today is the last day to collect your voting documents for Saturday’s European Parliament and Local Council elections.
The Electoral Commission reminds voters in Gozo who have not collected their voting documents that they may be collected up until midnight today, Thursday, the 23rd of May, from the I.D. Cards Office at St Francis Square, Victoria.
The Commission advised that every voter must attend personally with his Identity or Residence Card. Without the voting document/s, no one would be allowed to vote on polling day.
On voting day, Saturday the 25th of May, that Commission said that voting hours are between 7.00am and 10.00pm without interruption. Voters are to attend at the polling centre address indicated on their voting document.
It explained that ten voters who are able to vote without assistance are to enter into the polling booth for every voter who needs assistance to vote from the assistant electoral commissioners.
The Electoral Commission also advised that “every person who impedes or prevents the free exercise of a voter’s right to vote in these elections shall be guilty of an offence according to law.”
