So what can you do if there are irregularities in your record?
We have compiled this brief action guide for you:

What can you do if you see someone using your details to vote on polling day or you see a suspected phantom voter?
- Malaysian citizens are empowered under Section 27 of the Criminal Procedure Code to make a citizenís arrest and bring the suspect to the custody of the nearest police officer or police station.
The law requires citizens who witness a seizable offence to take the necessary steps to prevent it but apply prudence in this - your personal safety
is also important.
Alert any representative of a law enforcement authority nearby or go with some friends if you intend to make a citizenís arrest.
