Postal ballots for GE15

Dear fellow Malaysians,

Postal ballots for GE15 will be issued on 7th November so voters in France should receive them several days after that. The timing will depend on the location of your voting constituency in Malaysia and on where you live in France.

  1. Getting ballots back to Malaysia in time

If your ballots arrive sufficiently early, you can send your own ballot back by individual courrier directly to the Returning Officer’s address on envelope B which will be part of your ballot papers (for postal voting guide see ) . Please find below some estimated delivery times and costs of courier services between Paris and Kuala Lumpur. Extra days should be added for other locations -please check directly with courier service.

We are grateful that four people flying back to Malaysia from France departing 13th, 16th and 17th November have kindly volunteered to carry back ballots. If you want to send back ballots through them, please bring your ballots to a collection point managed by MAF at the embassy (2 bis Rue BĂ©nouville, 75116 Paris) at the times below.

Important notes: Your ballot envelope A should be sealed, but the ENVELOPE B SHOULD REMAIN UNSEALED so that those collecting can make sure there are only ballot papers in the envelope. If you want your ballot marking to be witnessed at the MAF collection point, PLEASE BRING YOUR MALAYSIAN IC with you.

Attention: Priscilla Yap

(This telephone number can be provided to the delivery company: +33Ěý6Ěý78Ěý68Ěý72Ěý82)

Once in Malaysia, ballots will be delivered to collection and sorting points organised by Undi18 or other networks for delivery to individual constituencies.

If you would like to volunteer to coordinate ballots in your area (including manning collection points in Paris), please fill in this .


Important: Your ballot is your own responsibility and it is your decision as to how you want to return it to your constituency. ĚýThe collection and hand delivery of ballots back to Malaysia is being organised by volunteers to help return overseas votes on time.Ěý MAF, the embassy, and individual volunteers and flyers cannot be held responsible for what happens to your ballot.


  1. Witnessing ballots

For voters who do not have other witnessing options, Malaysian Embassy staff will be available to act as witnesses during embassy opening hours (Mon-Fri 9h30-17h00).


MAF and the MASAF (Malaysian Association of Student in France) are working together to try to connect Malaysians who have trouble finding other Malaysians in their areas.


If you need, or can volunteer to be, a witness, please fill in this .



  1. Help students to vote

As the voting age has been lowered to 18 years, there are many students in France who will be voting for the first time. To support them, MASAF is crowdfunding to raise money to deliver ballots to Paris by courier or by hand to be flown back. MAF would like to encourage all of you to support our students to exercise their right to vote by donating on this link:


  1. Data collection to improve the overseas voting system

Please help Global Bersih’s efforts to push for a more workable overseas voting system by noting when you ballot arrives and when it was sent from Malaysia (keep the envelope), when and how you returned it and how much it cost you. A data collection survey will be shared shortly.
