Malaysians studying overseas can register as postal voters, says EC chairman

PETALING JAYA: Malaysian students overseas need only to inform the Election Commission (EC) that they are out of the country so that they can vote.

EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Yusof said the students could register themselves as postal voters.

“As long as they are above 21 and are studying overseas full-time, they can vote. However, they need to inform us that they are going overseas,” he said yesterday.

Abdul Aziz said students who turned 21 while overseas could register as voters with the embassies in the respective countries they are in.


The embassies would send the ballot papers to the addresses provided by the students.
