Marshall Islands, Radio New Zealand, Voter turnout low in Marshall Islands national election, published on 6 January 2020, accessed 13 January 2020

“The low number of votes actually cast in the November 18 national election also reflects the lack of postal absentee ballots from the tens of thousands of Marshall Islanders living in the United States, the first time for postal voting to be eliminated in an election in the Marshall Islands.

The parliament in 2016 adopted a law cancelling the voting system through the mails that had been in place for four decades. The law was declared unconstitutional by the country's courts in October but not in time for the voting system to be restored for the November election.”
