1. CIRCULATED MESSAGE: There’s a push for postal voting for overseas M’sians. Here is my concern: The problem with postal votes is that on receipt in Malaysia the votes can be CHANGED! That why in GE14 the voting forms were hand carried by Malaysian traveller back to KLIA. At KLIA, people fr various states waited to receive the hand carried voting forms & distributed them to their polling stations.
  2. BERSIH’S RESPONSE: Unlikely. Postal ballots are marked and sent by the voter in sealed envelopes. To change the votes, the envelope has to be opened and very likely tearing it and someone has to re-mark the choice on the ballot. Both these actions would render it as a spoiled vote. This concern or allegation is not supported with evidence and likely aimed at discouraging people from voting.
What are your feelings
