Malaysia’s Election Commission has set the country’s long-awaited general election for 5th May 2013, and this may be the most exciting election in Malaysian history.
Clique Clinic likes to encourage all Malaysians over the age of 21 to come out and exercise your duty as a citizen of our nation.
Eligible voters are Malaysians over the age of 21, and registered with the Election Commission of Malaysia (SPR). However, there have been cases where unregistered Malaysians have managed to be registered automatically.
Even if you have not registered on time, it is wise to check your status online via: http//daftarj.spr.gov.my/
You can enquire or lodge your complain if you have registered but your record have not been found; your voting location removed; or displayed as unregistered in the SPR database.
You can contact SPR at 03-88856565, or email to http://semak.spr.gov.my/systemaduan
It is illegal for employers to deny your rights to take time off to vote. Apply your leave, book and buy your tickets early, and plan your journey well.
Do note that election is also a time when you can become vulnerable to communicable diseases, especially in crowded situation. Infectious diseases, such as Influenza, Mumps, and most other viral diseases can be prevented with good hand hygiene, and vaccinations.
It is good to be prepared with handkerchiefs, hand sanitizers, wet tissues, and medications. Also, wash your hands to avoid cross infection such as conjunctivitis (red eye), and droplets from people having upper respiratory tract infections. Cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough, and wash your hands thereafter.
It is easy to get dehydrated in a hot day during election. It is important to keep yourself hydrated by having your own bottle of water. Take your meal before you start your journey to vote and travel safely to your polling stations.
As the indelible ink will be used in this election, it is advisable to refrain from manicure prior to voting. Do not allow others to demonstrate the indelible ink on your fingers prior to casting your vote. Make sure that your voting paper is clear from any scribbles, for example a drop of ink, a tick, etc (refer to pictorial guide below).
Last but not least, keep an eye on your children if your little ones are accompanying you to your polling station.
Clique Clinic wishes you: happy voting!
