KUALA LUMPUR: A number of police personnel who were registered postal voters have received their ballot papers and have exercised their right to vote.

Assistant head of the Inspector-General of Police secretariat (public relations) Asst Comm Ramli Mohamed Yoosuf said some of these personnel had received their ballot papers as early as April 23 and have already voted and mailed them back to their respective polling centres.

He said several blogs had claimed that police had started advance voting ahead of the date set by the Election Commission but that was untrue.

"It is a cut and dry issue.

"Some of our personnel are registered for advance voting while others are postal voters," he said on Thursday adding that bloggers and the public should not confuse the two methods of voting.
