To clarify things: l 1. The cut off point to register on the padron (electrol roll) was the 31st January. l 2. Those registered on the padron who have not previously registered their wish to vote, have until the 16th April to fill in a separate voting census form. l 3. Those that are already on the padron and have also completed a voting census form (either recently or for the 2003 elections) are on the census, have the right to vote, and need not fill in another form.
I would suggest that instead of decrying the foreign department Mr. Durkin should realise that it was specifically set up for citizens like him who obviously cannot cope with procedures and forms such as these.
