a. Postal voting in the camps to be done on the same day and counting to be done in the base(s) OR
b. The Police and Army IF REGISTERED in the constituency vote at polling booths like all ordinary citizens.
Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof has given his assurance that phantom postal votes would be impossible in the Bagan Pinang state by-election, adding the postal voting would be conducted under strict security and would adhere to procedures.
What he meant by strict security is anybody's guess, unless he is allowed spell them out.
What procedures he would adhere too is also a motherhood statement. These procedures have been questioned endlessly.
This is what Brigadier General (Rtd) Datuk Mohd Arshad Raji ( 4th Mechanized Infantry Brigade) wrote in his blog:
There is also the perception that postal voting is not transparent and flawed, especially having to cast their votes a few days ahead of the actual polling date. Actually, there is no reason to do this, especially if the postal voter is located in the same constituency where the voting is held. The voter can cast his vote like anybody else, and his name checked against the nominal roll usually prepared by the Armed Forces Record & Pension Directorate. If this is done, transparency is upheld and there will not be any accusation that absent voters ballot papers are marked and place in the polling bags.

Many have questioned Postal Votes. I was hoping MAFREL will say something, or I might have missed their take.
