PUTRAJAYA: Those who pre-registered to be automatic voters will be able to check the status of their registration from Oct 1 to 31, says the Election Commission (EC).
Its secretary Datuk Ikmalrudin Ishak said the commission will be putting up information of the 5.8 million would-be voters on public display, so they will be able to do verifications.
“One method to check on the pre-registration of automatic voters (SPPA) is through the MySPR SPPA application at https://mysprsppa.spr.gov.my.
“Another way is by visiting 604 SPPA verification centres available nationwide, and one can scan their voting constituencies using the QR code there,” said Ikmalrudin in a statement on Wednesday (Sept 29).
Ikmalrudin said within the SPPA period, Malaysian citizens aged 18 and above who have not been registered as voters can verify their details or file an objection before their automatic registration.
“We urge the potential 5.8 million voters who are 18 and above to verify their information with the EC.
“If an individual finds that they do not live at the address displayed, the EC urges them to update their identity cards at the National Registration Department latest by Oct 31,” he said.
Malaysia is set to implement automatic voter registration and the lowering of the voting age to 18 from 21.
