PRESS RELEASE BY THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION: Electoral Register published in the Government Gazette

The Electoral Commission notifies the general public that a revised Electoral Register upon which the general election due on 3rd June, 2017, is based has been published in the Government Gazette of the 6th May, 2017. Any person who had the necessary qualifications to be registered as a voter in accordance with the provisions of the General Elections Act (Cap.354), on the closing date 1st May, 2017, and whose name has not been included in the Register, and every voter whose designation, address or other particulars have not been shown correctly has, according to Art. 39 and Art. 42 of the General Elections Act, up to Saturday 20th May, 2017, to appeal to a Revising Officer to have one’s name included or one’s particulars corrected in the Electoral Register.

Any registered voter who:

1) desires, for any lawful reason, to remove from the register the name of any person for want of the requisite qualification; or

2) 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 to this effect in accordance with Art. 40 and Art. 42 of the General Elections Act, up to Saturday, 20th May, 2017.

Any person desiring to appeal to a Revising Officer may seek assistance at the Electoral Office. The attention of the general public is drawn to the importance of verifying their inclusion in the Electoral Register. Failure to do so may result in the loss of a person’s entitlement to vote in the General Elections, due to be held on Saturday, 3rd June, 2017.

The General Elections register may be viewed at the Electoral Office. However, one may check if one is registered as a voter in this register through the online facility in the Electoral Commission’s website, www.electoral.gov.mt, under the Publications section and by pressing the Can I vote? button.
