Don't Forget To Exercise Your Voting Rights!

Don't Forget To Exercise Your Voting Rights!

GE15 will see an electorate size of over 21 million, thanks to automatic voter registration and UNDI 18. A high turnout rate is crucial to give legitimacy to Parliament. Encouragingly, early voting on Tuesday saw an almost 95% turnout rate and we continue to hear stories of Malaysians abroad racing against time to ferry votes back to our country. So as the clock ticks towards the 19th of November to choose the future we want, how different has this campaigning period been and why should you go out to vote? For answers, we speak to Jason Wee, Co-Founder, Architects of Diversity.
