54. Every person who is an elector on 1 September of the calendar year in which a general election is to be held is entitled to have his name entered on the list of electors.
The same applies to any person who, on that date, is not an elector solely because the person is not then of full age but will have attained full age on polling day. For the purposes of any other provision relating to entry on the list of electors, such a person is deemed to be an elector on the date mentioned in the first paragraph.
However, in the case of undivided co-owners of an immovable and of co-occupants of a business establishment, only the co-owner or the co-occupant designated for that purpose pursuant to section 55 is entitled to have his name entered on the list of electors as the owner of the immovable or as the occupant of the business establishment.
