Persons to serve as Assistant Electoral Commissioners; Counters; Supervisors and Calculators

The Electoral Commission notifies that it will receive applications from registered voters to serve as Assistant Electoral Commissioners or to serve as counters, supervisors or calculators during the counting of votes in the forthcoming election for Members of the European Parliament and for the Local Councils' Elections for the localities of Birgu, Qormi, Siġġiewi, Attard, Birżebbuġa, Floriana, Gżira, Għargħur, Ħamrun, Kerċem, Luqa, Marsaxlokk, Mosta, Munxar, Paola, Qala, Safi, San Lawrenz, Santa Luċija, Swieqi, Xagħra and Żebbuġ (Gozo). These two elections shall be held concurrently on Saturday 12th June, 2004.

Voters who are registered in localities where Local Councils' elections are being held cannot apply to serve as Assistant Electoral Commissioners. They may however apply to serve during the counting of votes for the aforementioned localities except for that locality under which they are registered as voters and for the counting of votes in the election for the Members of the European Parliament.

Note should be taken that the counting process for Members for the European Parliament would be expected to commence after the Local Councils' counting has been fully concluded, ie., towards the night of Sunday 13th June and that it may continue until Wednesday 16th June. Applicants for counting duties should therefore, if eventually selected, be free to attend to their assigned shift without problems of employment or conditions of any other type.

Applications will be received by the Electoral Commission at its Office, Evans Building, St. Elmo Square, Valletta, and for persons residing in Gozo at the Identity Cards Office, 7A, Republic Street, Rabat, Gozo, from Thursday 15th April up to Tuesday 20th April 2004, from 2.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. except on Sunday 18th April. On Saturday 17th April applications will be received from 8.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. Application forms, the only ones admissable, may be obtained from the Electoral Office on the above mentioned dates and times.
