1. Before going to the polling station, ensure that your name is listed on the electoral roll. You can do this by checking at SPR website or SMS your IC number to 33886 (cost you 50 cents).2. You can use any of the following documents when verifying your identity at the polling station:

Identity card (I.C.); International passport; Identity Card Temporary receipt (Form JPN 1/9); Lost Identity card receipt (Form JPN 1/11 with photograph) that has been certified true by the National Department; or driving licence.

3. Voters who are blind or disabled are permitted to ask their relatives to mark ballot papers for them. If in case the relatives are unavailable, the presiding officer will help mark the ballot papers.

4. Do not go to the polling station wearing large and obvious party symbols.

5. Wait patiently for your turn to vote. Most ballot center provide chairs. You can sit and relax if you’re tired…

6. Do not speak or discuss with others while marking your ballot paper. If you have problems, consult the presiding officer.

7. Do not take too long to mark your ballot paper and do not spoil it as you will not be given a replacement.

8. Mark the ballot with “X”. Remember teachers and lecturers, do not tick the box. This happen a few times before because they are very used to marking and correcting examination papers or exercise books.

9. Do not show the ballot paper to others. Your vote is secret. Keep it to yourself – For your eyes only.

10. After marking the ballot paper, put it inside the transparent SPR ballot box.

Remember: You are only allowed to vote once in an election. Do not cast your vote twice or more as this is a serious offense.

    In all honesty, how can the SPR know if we voted twice since they ruled out indelible ink?

    I was told that on every voting sheet, there’s a reference number. So in the end, our vote is not a secret at all.

    I suspecting the fella that arrested few days back due to having a indelible ink is acting only, or paid to do so
