The Elections Secretariat has decided to grant another opportunity for postal voters to cast their vote.

Additional Elections Commissioner U. Amaradasa said that postal voters could cast their vote from 9 a.m. to noon on Sunday, Jan. 4. Amaradasa said that those eligible to cast their postal vote, but have not done so as yet, can cast their vote at their respective District Elections office.

The Additional Elections Commissioner noted that this decision was arrived at after taking into consideration the requests that were made in this regard.

Meanwhile, the Elections Secretariat says that Jan. 5 is the deadline for the issuance of temporary identity cards for the Presidential Elections. Additional Elections Commissioner Amaradasa said that voters can submit their application for a temporary ID during the course of the day, to their respective Grama Niladhari officer.

The deadline to submit applications for temporary IDs for the Presidential Election was initially Dec. 31, 2014. However, measures were taken by the Elections Secretariat to extend the deadline to Jan. 3 and Jan. 5, taking into account of those affected by adverse weather conditions.
