There will be no early voting centre open on Oct 3 as all police personnel for the Pelangai state by-election have been issued a postal vote ballot, said Election Commission (EC) secretary Ikmalrudin Ishak.
He said the EC had issued 73 ballot papers to those eligible to vote for the by-election yesterday.
According to him, 69 papers were issued under category 1A, encompassing election personnel who are members or officers of the EC, policemen, and media personnel, apart from category 1C for agency and organisation as well as three overseas absentee voters.
"The postal vote ballot issuance was conducted before postal vote agents from all contesting candidates," he said in a statement today.
In this regard, EC reminded all postal voters to mark on the ballot paper, complete the identity declaration form (Form 2), and return it to the returning officer before 5pm on polling day on Oct 7.
"Voters are reminded to keep the vote secret by not taking pictures of the ballot paper and posting them on social media," he said.
EC had earlier fixed voting day on Oct 7 while early voting is on Oct 3.
