A YOUNG volunteer recruited at the last minute is happy to help at the polling centre in SK Seksyen 7 in Shah Alam, Selangor.

20-year-old Noor Hariz Hariri Nor Hashimi said he learnt about a volunteer that could not make it and took the opportunity to offer himself for the experience.

"It is fun, not like a real job but more about helping people. I came in the morning and sorted my registration as a volunteer.

"I have been assigned as a clerk to help voters check their details at the registration counter. The job is easy. I have to check their personal information and direct them to their respective voting streams.

"However, many voters seem to have checked their voting streams before coming here and bypass my counter," he said.

When asked about his experience so far, he said it was a unique one and that he enjoyed watching people and some of their antics.

He also said that he would be taking time off to go to vote at a nearby polling centre before the voting period ends.
