Bill No. 28 - General Elections (Amendment) Bill

Objects and Reasons

The objects and reasons of this Bill are to introduce the possibility of vote counting by electronic means, the possibility for Advance Voters and Assistant Electoral Commissioners registered under Gozo to vote in Gozo, the definitions that have become necessary over time including those of Polling Place Officers, and to conform together the General Elections Act (Cap. 354) and the Local Councils Act (Cap. 363) with regards to terms and deadlines; currently there exist differences in these two pieces of legislation which hinder operations especially in the case where elections are held on the same day.
