That’s right, I registered to be a voter! After all, it was only a day short of 50th Merdeka, and I figure it’s about time I fulfill my civic duty to participate in this democratic process. I’ve already missed a couple elections when I was in the States, even though I was old enough to vote.
It’s about time to do it too if you haven’t register yourself to be a voter already. The process is simple and fast, took me only a few minutes at the post office. Do note that it takes 3 months to be effective (as a way to prevent voter movements, or something)
finally registered as a voter!
p/s: Wikipedia actually has a good entry on elections in Malaysia.
