KUALA LUMPUR: The Election Commission (EC) will display a list of 42,051 voters whose records cannot be verified.
In a statement, the EC said the list would be displayed for a week from today – with the electoral roll for the third quarter of 2011 in 987 locations nationwide.
It added that the list of doubtful names was not for the purpose of objection, but for verification by the electors and their next of kin.
“If the electors found their names in the list, then they should clear the matter with the National Registration Department and sort out their identification records before referring the matter back to the EC,” it said.
On the electoral roll for the third quarter, he said it contained 264,404 applications for new registrations and 52,215 for a change in address.
It added that those who were registered during the exercise from July to September but found their names missing from the list should present their case.
“They can fill up Form B and send it to state EC offices within seven days from the date of display.”
Objections could be made by filling up Form C, it said, reminding the public, however, “not to make objection for the sake of objecting, but should be accompanied by valid reasons”.
The EC will also display the names of those who will be removed from the list.
Between July and September, it removed 69,293 names of those who have died as well as 1,068 names of those who were no longer holding citizenship. — Bernama
