The Election Committee (EC) has urged Malaysian citizens aged 18 and above to verify their details or file an objection as they move forward with the implementation of UNDI18 and the automatic registration of voters.
The EC Secretary, Ikmalrudin Ishak said Malaysians will be able to do so and check the status of their registration from 1 to 31 October, and those who have not been registered as voters will be automatically registered after 31 October.
Meanwhile, Ikmalrudin said the commission will be putting up information of the 5.8 million prospective voters on public display so they are able to perform verifications.
“One method to check on the pre-registration of automatic voters (SPPA) is through the MySPR SPPA application at https://mysprsppa.spr.gov.my.”
“Another way is by visiting 604 SPPA verification centres available nationwide, and one can scan their voting constituencies using the QR code there.” Ikmalrudin said in a statement shared on Facebook yesterday (29 September).
The SPPA verification centres that are available nationwide include the state election headquarters or office, post office, district office, land office, district council, municipal council, multipurpose hall, rukun tetangga and penghulu’s office.
The public can contact their state election office, the EC Hotline at 03-8892 7018 or browse the www.spr.my.gov website for more information.
“We urge the potential 5.8 million voters who are 18 and above to verify their information with the EC.”
“If an individual finds that they do not live at the address displayed, the EC urges them to update their identity cards at the National Registration Department latest by Oct 31.” he said.
Malaysia is set to implement automatic voter registration and the lowering of the voting age to 18 from 21 by end of 2021.
