EU national registered as resident in Malta
I am an EU national registered as resident in Malta. Can I vote or be a candidate in the upcoming European Parliament elections in Malta?
Yes, if you are an EU national registered as resident in another EU country you are entitled to vote and even run for the office of MEP in your host country, that is, the country where you are currently registered. This also applies for the local council elections. To do so you must comply with the host country's electoral laws.
This means that EU nationals residing in Malta can vote for a Maltese MEP and run for office as one of the Maltese MEP while Maltese nationals currently residing in other EU states can vote for an MEP of his/her country of residence or run for office there and need not come and vote in Malta.
To comply with Malta's electoral law one has to ensure that his/her name appears in the electoral register in time for the elections. To do so one must contact the Electoral Commission's office in Valletta.
