FLASH: Postal voting applications open for GE14

The Election Commission has just announced that applications for postal voting in GE14 for Malaysians living overseas are now open.


1. You must be registered as an ordinary voter.

2. You have been in Malaysia or returned to Malaysia for not less than 30 days during the five years before the dissolution of Parliament.

3. You must be living overseas (excluding southern Thailand (Narathiwat, Pattani, Yala, Songkhla and Satun), Singapore, Brunei and Kalimantan province, Indonesia.)

To register, you must download Form 1B and return it before midnight on the day Parliament is dissolved. 

The EC has also announced that postal votes will now be sent out and returned by post instead of via Malaysian consulates overseas as was the case for GE13.

MyOverseasVote is now seeking assurances from the EC that will be enough time between nomination day and polling day for postal votes to be sent out and returned under this new procedure.

    Thanks for the information and update, appreciate that. Should I submit my application again even I have registered myself as a postal voter during GE13?

    Thanks for the update. Just to clarify, should Form 1b be returned directly to SPR and can it be done so via the email in the form? Unless I’m missing it, instructions on the form are not clear.
