I am a 24 year old Malaysian, and it’ll be my first time voting! This is what I learnt about the Malaysian voting day process.
5th May 2013 is VOTING DAY.
After getting feedback in the comments, I realised that some steps were misinformed or changed in this years General Election. Updates listed below:
1) On polling day, no campaigning is allowed. Any “campaign party” outside the school is actually illegal. Information should be collected during the campaigning period (that ends at 11:59pm the night before voting day).
2) There are 2 places where your IC will be checked. First, when you enter the school gate, through “barung agent”. They will tell you which “saluran”, or which classroom to go to. Then at the classroom itself is the 2nd check.
3) Indelible ink is painted on the LEFT hand index finger
4) A second official election agent, AFTER presenting your IC, will paint your finger with indelible ink.
5) If you make a mistake on the ballot paper, you can ask for ONE (last) replacement.
Thank you for all you’re feedback! Every piece of information is invaluable and truly informative.
