Title: Vote Equals Cool

Calling out to all Malaysians to vote in the upcoming GE. Because voting is cool ;-)
Soundtrack: A Dog's Life by Charlie Chaplin
In the 2008 general election, 8.16 million voters exercised their right to vote for their representatives to Parliament. This figure was about 76% out of the total number of registered voters in 2008 of 10.7 million. However, nearly 5 million Malaysians eligible to vote were unable to do so as they had not registered. Based on these figures, approximately 7 million eligible voters did not vote during the previous general election!
