THE Fijian Elections Office has released the postal voting application form and the postal voting information paper for those who intend to vote by post yesterday.

According to a statement issued by the Elections Office, the forms are available at the office in Toorak or at the nearest Voter Information Centre.

The statement said postal voting was available to registered voters in Fiji and overseas who would be required to apply to be eligible to receive postal ballots.

According to the Electoral Decree, an application for postal voting may be made if the applicant is living outside of Fiji or will be outside of Fiji on the polling day.

This also applies to applicants who are unable to travel from their residences to their assigned polling station because of serious illness or infirmity and if the voter is under pre-trial detention or sentence of imprisonment.

If the applicant is away from his or her usual place of residence and in a place not convenient to his or her assigned polling station because of work commitments on the polling day, he or she can also apply for postal ballot.

Applications must include a copy of a voter's identification card and the signature or thumbprint of the voter.
