The voting results are stored in a computerised system for analysis and to produce a more efficient as well as fast decision making. It is an additional alternative to the conventional method and the launching was held yesterday afternoon at the Ministry of Home Affairs. With the launch, village residents can register as voters using the PMKK e-Vote Mobile Application which can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play and accessed using e-Darussalam account.
