Selangor voters increase more than 50pct for GE15


The number of registered voters in Selangor went up by 52.28 percent or 1,262,774 people as eligible voters for the 15th general election taking the total in the state to 3,677,848 compared to 2,415,074 in GE14.

Selangor Election Commission deputy director Kamarul Azman Ahmad Sabri said the larger electoral roll which was gazetted on Sept 25, was attributed to the implementation of Undi18 and automatic registration.

“The total made Selangor the state with the highest number of registered voters for GE15,” he told reporters after a GE15 media personnel briefing in Shah Alam today.

The total state voters comprised 3,652,790 ordinary voters, early voters for armed forces (7,468), police (16,779) as well as absentee voters from abroad (811).

A total of 974 polling centres has been gazetted involving 51 early voting centres and 923 normal polling centres, he said.
