The elections are TOMORROW. These elections hold tremendous importance, and the results will impact every Malaysian. That’s why it’s essential to vote.

Here are five reasons why you should be out there at the polling stations tomorrow.

1. Elections have consequences. Every vote matters.

You have the power to make key decisions on the quality of life you want for yourself, your family, and your community. Voting is your chance to stand up for the issues you care about!

Low turnout means that important local issues are determined by a limited group of voters, making a single vote even more statistically meaningful.

2. It’s your right. It’s OUR future. 

For the first time, the youth (ages 18-20) are the biggest electoral bloc. With nearly 1.4 million people now automatically eligible to cast a vote, it’s our turn to make a difference this coming election. 

Get out there and vote for the future you intend to be a part of. 


3. Vote to improve the highways.

Have you ever wondered why we have so many roads with potholes and no one seems to be doing anything about it? 

The people we elect take an active role deciding what highways are needed, what public transit to support and how the bill will be paid. 

Vote to elect people who will do something to fix the problems we face.

4. It's your money.

One way or the other, every person in our community pays taxes.

And yet, most people don’t know how that money is being used. Voting is your chance to choose how your tax dollars are spent, such as additional funding for health care and social services. 

This happens when we elect to leadership positions that commit to supporting key social services in our communities.


5.  Voting is an opportunity for change.

As we said before, every vote matters. Voting gives you a chance to make a positive impact in your community! 

There are many social issues affected by elections, including (but not limited to) environmental issues, public education, women’s rights; etc. Social issues affect everyone in one way or another. 

To have a say in who gets to determine social agendas, it’s essential to vote.

Well, will you be voting tomorrow? #MalaysiaMemilih
