PUTRAJAYA: About three million unregistered eligible voters can cast their vote in the next general election, in the event it is held after August, only if they register by June 30.
Election Commission (EC) chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof said June was the most appropriate time for them to register, before the electoral roll was gazetted in August.
"June is the last month of the second quarter of the year, after which (in July) the names in the electoral roll will be displayed for two weeks. If there is no objection, it will be gazetted," he told Bernama here.
According to Abdul Aziz, there are 12.9 million registered voters, as of March, comprising Malays (6,782,990), Chinese (3,871,277), Indians (938,946), Sabah bumiputera (618,277), Sarawak bumiputera (519,563), Orang Asli (69,510) and others (11,2027).
He said June was also important for those who had already registered, to check their status in the electoral roll.
