* ECSA maintains a register of voters who meet a certain criterion that prevents them from attending a polling booth. These voters are called registered declaration voters and are automatically sent a postal vote pack at the time of an election or by-election.

**Applications are completed online, printed, signed by the voter and witnessed. The voter then scans and sends the application to a dedicated email address.
