The Chief Electoral Commissioner notifies that the closing date for the publication of the forthcoming revision of the General Elections, Local Councils and European Union Electoral Registers due in April is 31st March, 2017.
All Maltese and EU nationals aged 18 or over whose name does not appear in the Electoral Registers published in October, 2016, and who have not since applied for registration as voters, should do so provided they have the necessary qualifications. Also, all Maltese and EU nationals aged 16 or over whose name does not appear in the Local Councils Electoral Register published in October, 2016, and who have not since applied for registration as voters, should do so provided they have the necessary qualifications.
It is in the interest of voters to verify that their personal particulars as shown in the October 2016 Register are correct. They should also verify that the house number or name, the street name as well as the I.D. card number are shown correctly in the Register.
Registered voters should notify the Electoral Office of any changes/corrections that are necessary. Those persons wishing to apply for registration as voters or for a change/correction of surname and/or address in the Electoral Register, should do so by applying concurrently for their e-ID Card (Maltese nationals) or e-Residence Card (EU Nationals). More information may be obtained from the Electoral Commission’s website (www.electoral.gov.mt) under the “FAQs” section.

To utilize this facility one needs to visit the Electoral Commission’s website (www.electoral.gov.mt) under the “Publications” section and press the “Can I vote?” button.
