21,000 voting documents uncollected

Almost 21,000 voting documents reportedly remained uncollected by last night’s deadline, before tomorrow’s referendum which will decide on whether Malta should introduce divorce as a civil right or not.

The Electoral Commission refused to give the information when contacted last night and this morning, with a spokesman insisting that the official number will be published in the Government Gazette later today.

Nearly 21,000 voters had not collected their voting document by the time the deadline last night.

Calculations suggest that the number of uncollected votes amount to approximately seven per cent of the 325,103 eligible voters as listed in the last Electoral Register, which was published in October 2010.

The figure of uncollected voting documents is said to be the highest in recent political history.

Polling stations will open tomorrow Saturday at 7am and close at 10pm, while vote counting will start at 10am on Sunday morning in Valletta.
