PRESS RELEASE BY THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION General Election – 3rd June, 2017: distribution of voting documents

As previously announced, the Electoral Commission is distributing uncollected voting documents at the Electoral Office, Naxxar and at the Identity Cards Office, Victoria, Gozo, for voters registered in Gozo.

The Electoral Commission requests the co-operation of the public as follows:

a. voters who are unable to walk should be brought to the Electoral Office, Ex-Trade Fair Grounds, Naxxar by a private car. The Electoral Commission recommends that in such cases there should be another person accompanying the driver and the voter so that the accompanying persons could present the voter’s I.D. Card to one of the Commissioners and indicate to him the place where the voter in the parked car is.

b. the same service applies to voters in Gozo who are unable to go out of a private car near the Identity Cards Office, 28A, St. Francis Square, Victoria, Gozo.

c. In cases where elderly and sick persons are unable to be brought by a private car to collect their document, the Commission shall make an effort to deliver the document at their residence. For this purpose, the Electoral Commission requests that the voters themselves or a relative of these voters should call or contact the Electoral Office on 21411689/21411187/21412347 to furnish the necessary details.

The Electoral Commission requests the co-operation of the public to avail themselves of this service only in cases of justified necessity.

The Electoral Commission also reminds all those persons collecting their voting document that their voting document may only be collected on a personal basis and on the presentation of the voter’s identity card or residence document.

Without the voting document, no one would be allowed to vote on polling day.
