The statement released by the Commission read: "Any person who had the necessary qualifications to be registred as a voter, in accordance with the provisions of the General Elections Act (Chap.354), and/or the Local Councils Act (Chap.363), on the closing date January 7, and whose name has not been included in the respective Register and every voter whose designation, address or other particulars have not been shown correctly has, according to Art. 39 of the General Elections Act, up to Saturday February 2, to appeal to a Revising Officer to have one’s name included or one’s particulars corrected in the respective Electoral Register".
in addition, any registered voter who:
1) desires, for any lawful reason, to remove from the register the name of any person for want of the requisite qualification; or
2) claims that the respective designation, address or other particulars are not correctly shown in the register;
may also submit an appeal to a Revising Officer to this effect in accordance with Art. 40 of the General Elections Act, up to Saturday February 2, the statement read.
