Election Commission (EC) deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar said there are 4.9 million Malaysians that are eligible to vote have not registered themselves. Phew! I am so glad that my parents forced me to register many years back. Take note (from the deputy chairman):
"Malaysians like to do things at the last minute – even for registering as voters. But they forget that there is a three-month period for their names to be validated into the electoral roll."
