Y is for .....YOU and YOUTHs
Your Right, Your Say!
The above picture was taken at Pandarmaran Sunday morning market where there are a lot of people doing their morning shopping and marketing. A campaign is going on to get more people who have not regisered before to go and register as a voter.
The voting age is the minimum age in accordance to law that a person must attain to be eligible to vote in a public election. In Malaysia, this age is 21 years old.
My teachers and elders used to tell me that it is important to appreciate our freedom and to exercise our right to vote as good citizens. Having the right to vote would mean that there will be no racial, religious or sexual discrimination. My parents and grandparents has never missed a single election. Having lived through the colonial masters, two World Wars and the Emergency before our country finally attained independence, my grandparents truly appreciate and value their freedom to vote and choose their future leaders. Malaysia is our beloved country and as true citizens of this beautiful country, we must show that we care for her future.
Have you registered as a voter?
Do you go to vote?
