Islamabad (Staff Report): The deadline for online registration of overseas Pakistanis’ votes ended on Monday.
The ECP had launched the Overseas Voting System on Sept 1 for by-elections in 37 constituencies for both national and provincial assembly seats. Later, the ECP extended the deadline till 17.
By-polls will be held on 11 National Assembly and 26 provincial assembly seats on October 14.
The overseas Pakistanis will only be able to vote in the constituencies their vote is registered in.
It is pertinent to mention that only those overseas Pakistanis who are already registered voters will be able to exercise their right to vote in the upcoming by-polls.
On polling day, the registered voters shall log in to the website using their credentials and enter the ‘voter pass’ emailed to them by the ECP.
This will direct the voter to their registered national and provincial assembly constituencies to enable them to cast their vote.
A designated list of candidates of the selected constituency will be displayed by the system and the voter shall select the election symbol of their candidate to cast their vote.
Upon successful submission of the vote, a “confirmation” message will be displayed on the screen.
