PUTRAJAYA: The people can still register as voters as the Election Commission voter registration exercise is year-long.
A message that went viral on social media that today is the closing date for the people to register to be eligible to vote in the 14th General Election was untrue.
Sept 30, 2016, is the final date for registration for voters to be included in the 2016 Third Quarter Supplementary Electoral Rolls. Voters who registered between Oct 1 and Dec 31, 2016, would be included in the 2016 Fourth Quarter Supplementary Electoral Rolls.
The statement that voter registration could be done via SMS or WhatsApp by sending a photograph of the identity card to an online link was untrue.
A person had to bring along their original identity card, fill up Form A and present himself at the EC registration counter or any computerised post office counter or before an assistant registrar appointed by the EC.
