A total of 476,037 normal voters out of the 495,195 registered voters in Melaka are eligible to vote at the 15th state election this Saturday.
Election Commission (EC) secretary Ikmalrudin Ishak in a statement said of the total, 11,557 were early voters and 7,601 were postal voters.
He said voters are advised to check and take note of their information such as their polling centre, polling channel and voter’s number at https://pengundi.spr.gov.my or through the MySPR Semak application and EC hotline at 03-8892 7018 before polling day.
Ikmalrudin said the EC, through the MySPR Semak application, has also provided a voting time advisory for voters who are highly encouraged 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 at any time between 8am and 5.30pm. However, voters are advised not to wait until the very last minute,” he said.
Ikmalrudin said the voters are also required to comply with the rules and regulations on Covid-19 prevention on polling day.
They are also reminded to bring along their identity cards, but not to give these 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 responsibility as voters this Saturday,” he said.
