500,000 Eligible Voters In Perak Not Registered
IPOH, Dec 16
About 500,000 out of the 2.37 million eligible voters in Perak have not registered with the Election Commission (EC) as at April this year.
Perak EC director Ahmad Adli Abdullah said many of them were still unaware that they could register as voters and could change their addresses at the post-offices.
"They don't have to return to their hometown to discharge their duties as responsible voters if they have moved to other places," he told reporters after presenting the EC promotional banners to Pos Malaysia, here on Wednesday.
He said those who were above the age of 21 and eligible to vote should register as voters to fulfill their responsibilities for the country.
"It is sad when the level of public awareness on the importance of voting is still low because one vote can make a big difference in any election," he said.
Meanwhile, Perak Pos Malaysia general manager Mohd Azizi Mohd Sanusi said Pos Malaysia had always wanted to assist the government in fulfilling its social responsibility.
"Today, for example, Perak Pos Malaysia will help the EC to achieve its objective by offering voters' registration service at 84 post offices statewide," he added.
Hmmm … wonder why I get goose pimples all over …?
