Postal Ballot System
News: The Election Commission of India has allowed journalists to cast their votes through postal ballot facility.
• Any absentee voter wishing to vote by postal ballot has to make an application to the returning officer in Form-12D, giving all requisite particulars and get the application verified by the nodal officer appointed by the organisation concerned.
• Any voter opting for postal ballot facility would not be able to cast a vote at the polling station.
• Currently, the following voters are also allowed to cast their votes through postal ballot:
o Service voters (armed forces, the armed police force of a state and government servants posted abroad),
o Voters on election duty,
o Voters above 80 years of age or Persons with Disabilities (PwD),
o Voters under preventive detention.
• A restricted set of voters can exercise postal voting. Through this facility, a voter can cast her vote remotely by recording her preference on the ballot paper and sending it back to the election officer before counting.
