How do I change my voting location to Putrajaya?

So, I searched for the story and here it is from NST,

 
PETALING JAYA: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said it is a possibility that he may contest in Putrajaya in the coming general election.
Dr Mahathir said, “Yes, maybe I will stand in Putrajaya. You can tell them that I may contest.”
He was reponding to reporters today when asked on reports of him contesting in Putrajaya, at the PPBM headquarters.
Since last year, there have been calls for him to contest in the election, including from Parti Amanah Negara which had proposed that he stand in Putrajaya.
Dr Mahathir, who is also Pakatan Harapan chairman, had said recently that Langkawi or Putrajaya would be his preferred choice.
While both Langkawi and Putrajaya hold special significance for Dr Mahathir, both the constituencies are currently held by Barisan Nasional.
Putrajaya member of parliament is Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, who is also Federal Territories Minister.

Suddenly, for the first time, and I thought it would never happen, I felt pity for Ku Nan.

The guy surely can’t sleep well after this.

Well, if Dr Mahathir really contest Putrajaya, then I think he will win.

Actually, in a way, I think he will be helping Umno by doing that.

My opinion is that, Ku Nan is bad for Umno’s image and Dr Mahathir is going to help the party get rid of him.

I still hope Dr Mahathir can contest against TS Shahrir Samad in JB but if he chooses to contest against Ku Nan in Putrajaya, then it’s his choice.

Contests JB, he will capture the birthplace of Umno, contests Putrajaya and he will capture the constituency where the seat of government is located.

Okay la, both have merits.

Only that it would be more exciting if he contests JB as it would be a tough fight against Shahrir.

Against Ku Nan, I think it it will be a walkover.

Here is the Putrajaya details for the last general election in 2013;
Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor (BN/Umno) – 9,943 votes (69 per cent)
Husam Musa (Pas) – 4,402 (30.5 per cent)
Majority – 5,541
Eligible voters – 15,791 (Malays 94 per cent, Chinese 0 per cent, Indians 3 per cent, Others 2 per cent)
Voters turnout – 14,418 (91.3 per cent)
Spoilt votes – 73 (0.5 per cent)

And yes, there’s no Chinese voter in Putrajaya in 2013.
