Fourth-quarterly electoral roll on display


The 2015 fourth quarterly electoral roll which lists the application of 103,508 new voters and change of address of polling stations is on display in 964 locations nationwide from tomorrow until Feb 2.

Election Commission (EC) secretary Datuk Abdul Ghani Salleh said the registration applications involved 82,146 registration of new voters and 21,362 applications for change of polling station's address from registered voters.

He said applicants, whose names were not listed in the electoral roll, could make claims by using the Form B while registered voters who wanted to object the names of anyone in the 2015 fourth quarterly electoral roll could do so by completing the Form C.

"An individual can object not more than 20 persons.

"The Form B and Form C must be submitted to the Registrar (State EC director) for the registration area concerned on a work day during the time the electoral roll is displayed," he said in a statement in Putrajaya today.

Abdul Ghani said the objection must be substantiated and not with intent to deny the right of citizens to register as voters or belittling the role of the EC in the registration of voters.

During the display period, he said, EC also displayed the names of voters who would be removed from the electoral roll due to the applicants not residing in the constituency concerned, not being Malaysian citizens or had died.

Hence, he urged all applicants who had registered from Oct 1 until Dec 31 last year to check their voter registration information.

The revision can be made through the EC website at or by calling telephone line 03-8892 7000, he said.
