A friend of mind said I need not vote because I was overseas and why should I have to give up my right to vote just because I happen to be out of the country? Just because I didn't live in Malaysia does not mean I do not care about what happen in Malaysia. I strongly belive that people who doesn't vote shouldn't complain voting should be compulsory for anyone that is eligible.It is not a matter of YES,NO ,maybe well,Let us see it's an important voice that should be heard.
