Voter Registration Forms

Another process that is not well thought through from our government. While I laud the Elections Commission from making the voter registration forms readily available online, it is not as easy as it seems because – they provided three types of forms instead of one, with no instructions on which one to use.

The appropriate form needs to be downloaded, completed and submitted to the EC directly or to an assistant registrar like me. However, I am confused as I do not know whether I am allowed to collect all forms or just the ones I am normally allowed to use. I did not even know that there were different forms available.

To make it easy, anyone who wants to submit their forms to me should use the “NW” form available from the EC.

As for me, I wonder if I should write a programme to automatically extract the data from MyKAD and fill in the forms directly. This will allow me to keep digital copies of the forms and what nots. Just something to think about.

Also, if you can fill it up and email me the high-resolution scanned copies, I would be able to submit it directly to the EC on your behalf. I visit their offices quite regularly.
