Insite has been in contact with Electoral Commissioner Keith Galea, who divulged that for this year’s election,┬ástudents who have a medical appointment or are abroad on election day will not be allowed to vote on the previous day. The reason behind this is logistical since the system used by the Registrar cannot be amended on such short notice.

However, Galea is working closely with the Registrar to make this possible from next year.

In addition, the commission is also working to make it possible for Gozitan students at the University of Malta, who know they will not be in Malta on election day, to register from beforehand to be able to be able to vote in Gozo.
