Four thousand five hundred and five voters have been eligible for postal voting in the Local Government Election.
The Elections Secretariat said that only a small number have become eligible for postal voting in this election in comparison to other elections. The postal voting will be held on 29th and 30th of this month. The applications were entertained until the 25th of last month. The Elections Commissioner had requested not to apply for Postal Voting due to being engaged in election duties as officials from areas outside the electorates have been deployed for this purpose. The officials who are engaged in providing essential services including members of security forces and other public servants are only be eligible for postal voting.
