Are You Registered?

There are 4.5 million unregistered eligible voters in Malaysia. On the other hand, there are some 10.2 million registered voters. The unregistered pool forms a whopping 30.6% of the potential electorate. This 30.6% can certainly form a powerful political force in changing the political landscape of this country.

What's more important, this 30.6% of unregistered voters is comprised largely of our Malaysian youth aged between 21-35.

It's really easy to get registered as a voter. Just go to the nearest post office and provide them with your identity card at the registration counter. The entire form filling process will take not more than 5 – 10 minutes. And you'd be eligible to vote for the rest of your life as a responsible Malaysian.

Similarly, if you need to change your voting district, you could also do it at the post office. Your new address however, needs to be reflected in your MyKad.

Every vote makes a difference. If you are 21 years of age, you can be registered to vote. Let your voice be heard. Lets rock the vote!
