The number of undelivered voting documents dropped by half in five days, MaltaToday has learnt.

The hand-delivery of voting documents by police officers was concluded on Monday and 37,394 voting documents were not delivered.

By Friday night, the figure had gone down to 18,229 – from Tuesday voters who had not taken delivery of their document could go to collect it themselves.

Voters have until noon today to collect their voting document from police stations, after which the electorate will have between tomorrow and Thursday to collect it from the offices of the Electoral Commission.

Since Tuesday morning, political parties have been urging the eligible voters to visit their locality’s police station or local council to collect the voting document, with the number of undecided voters remaining high.

The undecided voters have become the target of both political campaigns, with Prime Minister Joseph Muscat trying to rope back the disgruntled and Opposition leader Simon Busuttil trying to tap into the same disgruntled Labour supporters in the hope of gaining their vote.
