Often, there aren’t enough polling agents and counting agents in each stream, which means cheats and phantoms voters can do whatever they want.
DUN Bukit Lanjan (N37) has 12 ‘Peti Undi’ (geographical division of the area and voting locality) and 52 ‘saluran’ (total voting streams).
This means with 2 persons alternating every few hours, we need a bare minimum of 104 volunteers to man all polling stations. Polling agents will then double-up as counting agents.
If you wish to help out, please do register with us as we need to submit your names and details to the Election Commission. Training will be conducted this weekend to allow those who are new to this process to familiarise themselves.
Help stop cheats and phantom voters. Come help! :)
