KUALA LUMPUR 1st July, 2011: Starting today, the Election Commission (EC) will implement the one address system where voters registered at one address will be identified.
EC deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar said the system was created to prevent strangers from using other people’s address to vote or for some other reason.
“The family head only need to enter the identity card number and the system will list those registered using the same address.
“I will see that my wife, son, brother or others who share my home address,” he said at a forum entitled “Tuntutan Bersih-Apa Penjelasan SPR” organised by Mind Development Institute (INMIND) here yesterday.
Wan Ahmad said the system will display the actual number of people who registered as voters using the same address.
“The address owner can lodge a complaint with EC for further action if there are strangers using the same address,” he added.
