MELAKA: A total of 476,037 normal voters out of the total 495,195 registered voters in Melaka are eligible to vote in the state election on Saturday (Nov 20).

Election Commission (EC) secretary Datuk Ikmalrudin Ishak said in a statement on Thursday (Nov 18) that the rest of the total comprised early voters (11,557) and postal voters (7,601).

He advised voters to check and take note of their information such as polling centre, polling channel and voter number at as well as through the MySPR Semak application and EC hotline at 03-8892 7018 before polling day.

Ikmalrudin said the EC, through the MySPR Semak app, had also provided a voting time advisory for each voter and highly encouraged them to cast their votes at the proposed time.

“If, for a certain reason, they cannot go to the polling centre during the proposed time, voters can still do so anytime between 8am and 5.30pm. However, voters are advised not to wait until the very last minute,” he said.

Ikmalrudin said voters were also required to always comply with the rules and regulations on Covid-19 prevention during polling day.

All voters were also reminded to bring their identity card, but not to give it to anyone other than the election officials at the polling channel for verification.

“We call on all voters in Melaka to come and perform their civic (duty) as voters this Saturday,” he said. – Bernama
