Malaysians overseas have until Parliament dissolves to apply for postal vote
KUALA LUMPUR: Registered Malaysian voters living abroad have until the dissolution of Parliament to apply for postal voting for the upcoming general election.
Election Commission (EC) deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar said applications through the 1B Form received after midnight on the day of dissolution would not be processed.
Since Jan 21, the EC has received 2,485 applications from Malaysians living overseas.
Besides them, 2,651 Malaysian students, civil servants and their spouses registered for postal voting for the coming elections.
He said Malaysian citizens could refer to the guidelines for filling up the 1B Form on the EC website to ensure it is done properly.
Completed forms must be sent to the EC's Overseas Postal Vote Management Unit in Putrajaya by e-mail (email@example.com). - Bernama
