SERI KEMBANGAN - Voters at Balai Mesyuarat Taman Bukit Serdang in Section 5 here have been placing their ballots in the wrong boxes since doors opened after 8am Wednesday.
The ballot papers – orange for parliament and yellow for state seats – were placed in boxes with labels that did not match the ballot papers.
An agent went on to check all 10 streams (saluran) in the polling station and found two with stickers not matching ballots.
Stickers are placed at the front of the box, away from the view of voters when they insert their ballots.
