EC Provides Online Voter Registration From Sept 6
KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 6 (Bernama) — Malaysian citizens aged 21 and above can now register online as voters by downloading and filling Form A from the Election Commission’s (EC) website, www.spr.gov.my.
EC secretary Datuk Kamaruddin Mohamed Baria said in a statement today that the facility was being provided from today to encourage more citizens to register as voters.
“This is provided for the voter registration assistant registrars and the public, whereby the assistant registrars appointed by the EC can download the Form A according to their needs,” he said.
Before this, they had to obtain the forms from the offices of the state election directors.
Kamaruddin said Malaysian citizens aged 21 and above who had not yet registered as voters, could download and fill Form A. However, they are required to keep a copy for themselves before submitting the downloaded form to the EC voter registration counter.
Information on how to fill up and send in the Form A is provided in the EC website.
More information on the online voter registration can be obtained by calling the EC headquarters in Putrajaya at 03-88856500.
