Polling and counting agents for postal voting

In Malaysia, there are three major types of voting: normal voting (undi biasa), early voting (undi awal) and postal voting (undi pos).

Generally, training for polling and counting agents tends to focus more on normal and early voting.

As the general election edges closer, let’s mentally prepare ourselves with knowledge related to polling procedure. Let’s start with a rarely discussed election process – one which has been advocated for Sabah and Sarawakian voters – postal voting.

Building on what you have learnt about the eligibility requirements of postal voting and the issuance of ballots, let’s explore the process of opening the postal ballot envelopes and the counting the votes. Notice the different forms used for postal voting, though some aspects are similar to normal voting.

Please watch the session, research the Postal Voting Regulations 2003 and be mentally ready when you want to serve as polling and counting agents for postal voting.
