Nearly 17,500 overseas votes cast so far

Nearly 6,600 overseas voters cast advance votes on Sunday for the upcoming general election on 8 November the Global New Light of Myanmar reported on 20 October.

Since advance voting began on 13 October, the total number of overseas voters rose to 17,498. The advance voting period will end on 23 October. About 18 overseas polling stations have been established at Myanmar embassies and consulates abroad.

A ballot with a signature of an official of a Myanmar embassy is considered a valid vote, according to the UEC.

A statement issued by the UEC urged overseas Myanmar nationals who cannot cast advance votes during the slated period to obtain recommendations from embassy officials to qualify them to cast their votes again on Election Day. However, such voters must be in Myanmar on 8 November to do so.
