European Parliament (Representation) Act 2003

Section 14: The Gibraltar register

32.Section 14 makes provision for an electoral register of Gibraltarian European Parliamentary electors. In the UK, the electoral registers for European Parliamentary elections purposes are the following: the register of Parliamentary electors, the register of local government electors (in respect of peers), the register of peers resident outside the United Kingdom maintained under section 3 of the Representation of the People Act 1985 and the register of those entitled to vote by virtue of European Union citizenship under the European Parliamentary Elections (Franchise of Relevant Citizens of the Union) Regulations 2001. Gibraltar will need its own register, governed by similar rules and conditions to the UK registers and the powers to make regulations in section 17 will be used to provide those rules and conditions. The electoral registration officer for the Gibraltar register is to be the Clerk to the House of Assembly of Gibraltar.
