EC received 38,895 new voter registrations in third quarter


PUTRAJAYA: The Election Commission (EC) has received 38,895 applications for registration as new voters in the third quarter of this year, says Datuk Azhar Azizan Harun.

The EC chairman said there were also 14,165 applications for change of electoral division.

In accordance with Regulation 13 of the Elections (Registration of Electors) Regulations 2002, the supplementary electoral roll for the third quarter of 2019 (ST3/2019) will be on display for 14 days until Nov 12 at 917 venues nationwide.

“Those who applied to register as new voters and registered voters who applied to change their electoral division from July 1 to Sept 30 this year should check their names.

“If their names are not in the ST3/2019 list, they can file a claim through Form B,” he said in a statement.

For registered voters who want to raise objection on the names in the list, they should fill up Form C, he said.

“The claim or objection must be submitted to the registrar of electors in their respective area during office hours on any working day during the duration of the list being displayed,” he said.

Azhar said the EC would also display the names of voters who had died or who lost their Malaysian citizenship, as they would be removed from the electoral roll.

As for army and police personnel who had left the service, he said the EC would work with the police and the armed forces to update information on their voting locality.

For any inquiry on the electoral display, the public can contact the EC headquarters at 03-8892 7018, the state election offices or visit www.spr.gov.my and also through its smartphone application MySPR Semak. — Bernama
