These regulations were gazetted in a Government Gazette Extraordinary on Friday 15th September 2017.
The regulations amend the following provisions of the Electoral Act:
- section 24 [Claims for registration]
- section 25 [Claims for transfer of registration]
- section 36A [New registration of voters]
- section 56 [Entitlement to vote, number of votes and identification of voters]
There is also a Schedule of minor amendments which merely correct instances of now outdated terminology. These amendments were obviously omitted in error when the Electoral Act was amended by the Electoral Amendment Act [Act 6/2014] and the General Laws Amendment Act [Act 3/2016].
