GE15 SOP For COVID-19 Positive Voters!
If you just tested positive for COVID-19, don’t worry – you can still vote on 19 November 2022, when Malaysia holds its 15th General Election (GE15).
On Tuesday, 15 November 2022, the Malaysia Election Commission (SPR) released their SOP for how COVID-19 positive people can vote during GE15.
Please go through it, and follow them, to ensure that you can cast your votes on GE15:
Before Election Day
- COVID-19 positive voters must complete a special health form that they will receive via SMS.
- Candidates and political party employees who test positive for COVID-19 are FORBIDDEN from conducting any physical election campaign activities. However, they can still conduct virtual campaigns during their Home Surveillance Order (HSO) period.
On Election Day

GE15 Process For COVID-19 Positive Voters!
SPR also created a flow chart of the voting process for COVID-19 positive persons, which I will summarise in this sequence:
- On arrival at the voting centre, you must report your health status to the KKM officer stationed there.
- The KKM officer will check you COVID-19 risk status in the MySejahtera profile page, while also checking your polling station (Saluran).
- You are REQUIRED to wear a face mask, and clean your hands with a hand sanitiser.
- The KKM officer will escort you to your polling station (Saluran), and you will be given priority to avoid mixing with other voters.
- At the polling station, you must maintain a safe physical distance from the election clerk and KKM officer when you remove your face mask for identification purposes.
- You must use a hand sanitiser to clean your hands BEFORE you dip your finger into the indelible ink.
- You must let the indelible ink dry, and then use a hand sanitiser again after placing your phone in a designated spot.
- You will then be given your paper ballot.
