State polls: Why turnout matters

Astro Awani looks at two initiatives that seek to highlight the importance of every ballot in the upcoming state polls.

The first is an election simulation calculator from Kini News Lab – an interactive article that allows people to predict the outcome of the state elections by using the 2022 general election data to show what could’ve happened if there were concurrent state elections last November.

The second is Bersih’s #VoteLokal campaign to raise voter awareness and encourage a high turnout on 12 August.

Melisa Idris speaks to Malaysiakini journalist Andrew Ong and Bersih chairperson Thomas Fann.
