New Voters

Found this at Vote For A Change Malaysia on facebook. Please forward this to your friends who are newly registered as voters or wanting to vote from overseas.

New Voters – Alert !!!
————————-
Once you’ve registered at the post office, do call up SPR at +603 8885 6500 and let them know that you have the pink registration receipt. Please fax it to them at +603 8888 9117 and follow up on each of your cases.

As for my case, I did register since June 2007, however after contacting SPR, they told me to do the above. When I called again, they replied that my date of registration was only done on Oct 2007. My details are now available online on Feb 2008.

    The closing date for postal votes was announced as Feb 5 throughout our embassies.

    However, the EC announced yesterday (25 Feb) that the last day will today (26 Feb).
