Since the opening of MySPR Semak online system for voters to check their polling locations, many voters have a question on whether they can come out to vote during non-advised hours.
MySPR Semak is an online system launched by SPR that allows people to check their voter information and polling locations. mySPR Semak will display the voter’s polling location, polling channel and polling number.
To reduce crowds at polling stations, the EC displays Masa Keluar Mengundi Yang Digalakkan in the MySPR Semak online system, which is the time the EC recommends for the voter to come out to vote. People can follow this time to vote to avoid long queues at the polling stations.
However, if you cannot come out to vote at the time suggested by the EC, you can still go to the polling station at another time to vote.
With the implementation of the automatic registration of voters at the age of 18, the number of voters eligible to vote has increased significantly and the EC has announced a one-hour extension of the voting hours. The polling hours in West Malaysia are from 8am to 6pm, while the polling hours in Sabah and Sarawak are from 7am to 5:30pm.
Malaysian citizens aged 18 and above can visit https://mysprsemak.spr.gov.my/semakan/daftarPemilih for voter information and polling locations.
