18-year-olds can’t vote in by-election


PUTRAJAYA: While candidates in the Tanjung Piai by-election can be individuals of 18 years and above, they, however, will not be able to vote for themselves.

Neither can their voters who have not reached 21 years of age, despite the law to lower the age of those eligible to cast ballots was passed in July.
