Some were moved to neighbouring constituencies like Bukit Saban, Saribas or Engkilili. Some were moved to far away places like Baram and some even to West Malaysia!
We need to verify that these voters had indeed asked to be transferred or if they were moved without their knowledge by the Election Commission.
The balance of 213 names from the 322 names that were removed from the latest 2014 list were listed as 'Record Not Found'.
These people are presumed dead, but can there have been so many deaths within a year in Layar? Or could some of them have been de-registered and removed off the voting list without their knowledge?
The red flag and biggest alarm bell was when we compared the 2013 figures with 2014, we found that the difference in total of voters is only two new voters, but surprisingly hundreds of voters within N31 Layar have been moved from their localities to other localities situated miles and hours away.
This would be devastating for many voters as they would not be able to cast their vote on polling day if they did not have transportation to go to their new polling stations, or are not in time to reach their new polling stations before balloting is officially closed at 12 noon.
We cannot explain these anomalies but we are checking to make sure that these voters who have been moved or de-registered are aware of their voting status so that the we can take appropriate action to remedy the situation.
I urge all voters in N31 Layar to either contact me on facebook to check their voting status or to go directly to the Election Commission website, and check their status online here.
