“For voters who have received the voter’s card or already know their voting information, they no longer have to go to the ‘barung’ (voters’ reference booth), but to proceed to their respective polling streams (on polling day).

“For those who have just checked for their voting information, they are advised to write down the details, such as their polling centre, polling stream and voter number, “ he said in a statement today.

He also reminded voters for the Tanjung Piai by-election to bring along their identity card and also the voter’s card, or their voting information, when they go to the polls this Saturday (Nov 16).

Voters have to present the necessary documents to the EC staff on duty at the polling streams who will verify their (voters) names, and to ensure a smooth voting process on that (polling) day, he said.
