The Election Commission (EC) has reported in Free Malaysia Today that employees of nine departments and agencies (who are eligible to vote but required to be on duty on polling day) can apply for postal voting, with applications to be submitted at least five days before nomination day.

The departments and agencies involved are the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, prisons department, fire and rescue department, health department (government hospitals and clinics only), auxiliary police, Malaysian Civil Defence Force, immigration department, National Disaster Management Agency and the National Registration Department (for staff at the Urban Transformation Centre only).

The EC said employees of the departments and agencies concerned can apply by filling in Form 1C, which can be downloaded from the EC website.

The completed forms must be sent to the EC headquarters at Menara SPR, No. 2 Jalan P2T, Presint 2, Pusat Pentadbiran Kerajaan Persekutuan, 62100 Putrajaya (u.p. Unit Pengurusan Undi Pos) or by email to upup@spr.gov.my or fax to 03-88810424/ 0399/ 0394/ 0386/ 0369.

Alternatively, the public can call 03-88810081 or email upup@spr.gov.my for any enquiries.

Election workers, members of the media, police and army personnel who cannot go for early voting meanwhile are required to apply through Form 1A.

The completed Form 1A must be submitted to the returning officer’s office at their respective polling areas. The closing date for this category is on nomination day.
