KUALA LUMPUR: Four siblings here have cast their ballots as a family for the first time in the 15th General Election (GE15).

The siblings, aged 20 to 29, said it was a particularly memorable one as they were able to vote as a family in the Batu parliamentary seat.

Student Divya Karasi Krishnan said they made sure to research the voting process before going to cast their ballots.

“It was simple and straightforward, although the first time nerves were still there,” the 21-year-old said.

Brother Ganesh Kumar, 20, added that with the long list of candidates to choose from they had read up on their manifestos and backgrounds.

“It is important that we know the people we choose to represent us,” he said.

Meanwhile oldest sibling Salini Devi, 29, who is voting for the second time, said they made sure not to discuss who they were individually voting for.

“Within our family we don’t discuss who to vote for as it is a personal choice. We make up our own minds on who to choose,” she said.

The siblings were accompanied by their father at the Sekolah Menengah Persendirian Chong Hwa voting centre this morning.
