Electoral rolls go on display
KUALA LUMPUR: The Election Commission (EC) has put on display for the next 14 days the supplementary electoral rolls for the first quarter of 2012 at 952 places nationwide.
It said in a statement the rolls were on display at 15 state election offices, 451 computerised post offices, 86 government complexes/offices, 124 district/land offices, 48 district/municipal council offices, 194 multipurpose halls/rukun tetangga posts/community halls/penghulu offices/halls and 34 other places.
The rolls can also be inspected on the EC website at www.spr.gov.my, it added.
The EC said 289,255 new applications for registration as electors and 104,430 applications for change of polling district were received in the first three months of this year.
"New applicants and people who changed their polling district are advised to check the rolls," it said.
The EC said those who have just applied for registration as electors but find that their names are not included the rolls can put in a claim on Form B.
Electors who want to object to the entry of names in the rolls can do so on Form C, for up to 20 names, it said.
The forms should be submitted to the registrar (state election director) for the registration area on a working day during the time of display of the rolls, it added.
The EC advised those who want to register an objection to ensure that they have strong grounds to do so.
It said it did not display the names which would be removed from the rolls, such as those of electors who have died, lost their citizenship status and so on.
"To facilitate the checking of the rolls by political parties, the EC will distribute to them a CD of the names to be removed," it said.
Enquiries can be directed to the EC headquarters at tel: 03-8885 6565 or fax: 03-88889117 or any state election office.
