Exercise your right to vote
It's time to vote

There is a buzz in the air as Malaysians gear up for national elections on 5 May 2013. If you're overseas right now and have registered for postal voting, do take note that polling is on this Sunday 28 April 2013.

In Melbourne, registered Malaysian postal voters can cast their vote at the Malaysian Consulate at 432 St Kilda Road between 9am and 5pm. To see where your polling venue is just go to the Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya website. Key in your IC number and they will tell you where to go.
Malaysian 'spring' sweeping through the nation


This year's elections is set to be potentially groundbreaking as more and more people are calling for change. There are 20% more new voters and a Malaysian spring is literally sweeping through the nation with people planting flags as a way to show their hopes for new beginnings.

Malaysians abroad can only participate vicariously via Facebook and websites. But now for the first time in history, they can also vote. I can't think of a better thing to do on a Sunday afternoon. If you're not a registered voter, I suppose you can still turn up to check things out.
