Electoral register published in the Government Gazette

The revised Electoral Register for General Elections and for Local Councils as well as the European Union Electoral Register have been published in the Government Gazette, the Electoral Commission announced.

The commission said that any person who had the necessary qualifications to be registered as a voter in accordance with the provisions of the General Elections Act and/or the Local Councils Act, and/or the European Parliament Elections Act, on the closing date 31st March 2020, can appeal to a revising officer.

Even those, whose name has not been included in the respective Register and every voter whose designation, address or other particulars have not been shown correctly has up to Tuesday 19th May 2020, to appeal to a Revising Officer to have one’s name included or one’s particulars corrected in the respective Electoral Register.

The Electoral Commission also said that any registered voter who desires, for any lawful reason, to remove from the register the name of any person for want of the requisite qualification or claims that the respective designation, address or other particulars are not correctly shown in the register, may also submit an appeal to a revising officer until Tuesday 19th May 2020.

People can verify their inclusion in the Electoral Register because failure to do so may result in the loss of a person’s entitlement to vote when General and Local Council Elections, and Elections for the European Parliament or Referenda are held.

One may check if he or she is registered as a voter in these registers through the online facility in the Electoral Commission’s website, www.electoral.gov.mt.
