By:Gabriel Lihan

KUCHING: Malaysians will go to the polls tomorrow (Nov 19).

The 15th general election will also see youths aged 18 to 20 getting to exercise their rights at the ballot box for the first time.

Voters have been reminded of the do’s and don’ts of voting.

According to the Election Commission (EC) website, voters must bring their identification card and give it to the clerk at the polling station, and show both hands for further proof of identity.

Besides that, when voters cast their votes, voters are only allowed to vote for one candidate with an ‘X’ on the voting slip.

Voters must leave their mobile phones at the presiding officer’s table before heading to the marking station to mark their ballots, and may collect it after casting their votes into the ballot box.

In addition to that, once voters have cast their votes into the ballot box, voters must leave the polling station immediately and avoid lingering around.
