NOTICE BY THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION

Electoral Register Published in the Government Gazette

The Electoral Commission notifies the general public that a revised Electoral Register for General Elections and for Local Councils as well as the European Union Electoral Register has been published in the Government Gazette of the 30th April, 2007. Any person who had the necessary qualifications to be registered as a voter in accordance with the provisions of the General Elections Act (XXI) of 1991, and/or the Local Councils Act (XV) of 1993 and/or Act XVI of 2003 providing for the holding of elections to the European Parliament, on the closing date 31st March, 2007, and 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, according to Section 39 of Act XXI of 1991 up to Monday 21st May, 2007, to appeal to a Revising Officer to have his name included or his particulars corrected in the respective 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 relative 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 Section 40 of Act XXI of 1991, as amended by Act XV of 1996, up to Monday, 21st May, 2007.

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 when General and Local Council Elections, Elections for the European Parliament or Referenda are held.

A list of all persons registered as voters in each particular town or village is being made available at the respective Police Stations, at the Local Council Offices and at the Electoral Office.

It is also notified that a Revising Officer may order the inclusion of a person's name, or the correction of the designation, address or other particulars or the cancellation of the registration of a voter, notwithstanding that no prior application may have been made to the Commission.
