JAKARTA - Problems are still lingering a week before Indonesia's simultaneous elections, with overseas voters uncertain about whether they can exercise their right to vote or not.
The General Elections Commission has slated April 8 to 14 for overseas voters to cast their ballots.
The Overseas Elections Committee (PPLN) says there are three ways that Indonesians can vote - direct voting at polling stations, by-mail voting, and drop-box voting. The vote count will be held simultaneously on Apr 17.
The election commission said on Wednesday voting overseas had begun smoothly, with ballots being cast in parts of Thailand, Yemen, Ecuador and Panama.
