You must ensure your ballot reaches your constituency by 5 pm on election day. Ballots arriving after this time will not be counted.
Look for a postal service which has a courier option. Although they are expensive, this is the fastest way to send your vote back to Malaysia.
Make sure there is a way to track your vote as it is being sent through the postal network.
Ensure you post your ballot at a post office or authorised service points. Avoid using 24-hour parcel lockers or home pickups.
Check where your vote is through your postal service's tracking system. If it gets lost, call your postal service without delay.
Once your vote arrives in your constituency, it will be counted with the rest of the votes in your constituency.
If your vote does not reach your constituency in time, you have the right to ask for a refund from your postal service under certain circumstances under the Australian Consumer Law.
