Campaign in TTDI to register more voters

Posted: 27 Jul 2011 09:45 PM PDT

A voter-registration campaign will be held at the Taman Tun Dr. Ismail market on the 30th and 31st July, 2011 (Saturday and Sunday) from 9am until 6pm.
The programme, jointly organised by TTDI residents and the Election Commission (EC), is aimed at creating awareness on the importance of registering as a voter.
This voter-registration campaign is apolitical because it is a local community programme.
EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof said that about 3.7 million eligible voters did not register to vote by July this year so iIt is the duty of a Malaysian citizen to sign up and to have a say on how the country is to be run.
Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong has also annouced that the general election could be held within the next 180 weeks days, so it was important to register before 30th September, 2011 in order to be eligible to vote when the next general election comes.
The drive will be held at the ground floor of TTDI market.
EC officers would also be present to update the people to vote in their current place of residence.
