Voter registration. An UPDATE

Since the last post about the voter registration campaign last weekend a lot of you have emailed to ask about how the event went. So I have posted an email from the people at which gives you an update.

Thank you for your support.

HI there,

Thank you so much for all that was done to support us in our first baby step. Just a short update!

We are very tired, but glad. In the run-up to the event, we have had only nighly naps of 3-4 hours for one week. For the event of weekends, we had virtually no sleep at all. The results we good, but we know we can do more. As a result, we will be asking for feedback from all parties that was working with us. (this will enable improvements)

The final score is as below, which we have updated on our site

Subang Parade: 357

Amcorp Mall: 183

E@Curve: 481

in TOTAL: 1021 newly registered voters.

Please go to our site for more updates (tomorrow) when we are more lucid. In the meantime, we are preparing for the nationwide launch for May 8 & 9. We would need more support to do this.

Thanks again...

On Behalf of
GEL team

I must commend you for your part of national service. We will help to urge more people to register for the election.

Strangely most people who do not register are the youngsters. They take their life for granted since they grow up in good times. They should think carefully about the future.

I have registered through one of the campaigns to get new voters last year, and yesterday I try to check my voter's details through this website
AND what a surprise, it said record not found. My parents wanted to change the voting constituency as well but til today they are still stuck in the old home town voting area.
Could anyone please provide advice? Should I go to the pos office and register again?

If Sabah's opposition parties fail to get the electoral rolls corrected in time for the next general election, it could cost them seats in the new parliament and state assembly.

How the high-stakes battle shakes out is a mystery to Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Dr. Hiew King Cheu.

He is puzzled why retired uniformed personnel are still listed under the category as postal voters in their previous areas of service.

He said he had received many complaints from the retired uniform personnel regarding their voting status and brought up the matter in parliament recently.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Nazri Aziz acknowledged that this was the case and that the Election Commission (SPR) was updating its list of registered voters and cleaning up the electoral roll.

Nazri explained that the names of retired police and arm forces were still listed as postal voters because they had not informed the SPR of their retirement.
