Voter education seminar + Polling and Counting Agents (PACA) Training
In preparation for the upcoming Sarawak’s 11th state election, Muk En Community Care Centre held a seminar to educate the voters and polling and counting agents (PACA) training session at Muk En Methodist Church. On 10th April 2015, 2pm, Rise of Sarawak Efforts (R.O.S.E) kicked off the Polling and Counting (PACA) training session. The main part of the training was on the roles and responsibilities of a PA and CA on Election Day interspersed with voter education and rights.
We had around 35 participants attended this seminar. Most of them are the members of Muk En Methodist church, while others are from our community. In the first hour of the seminar, all the participants were being educated about the importance to register as a voter and to fulfil the duties as a voter. We learned that only a qualified voter can choose the leader for this country via his vote. Through democratic election, we had the chance to select the leaders that truly serve this country and to eliminate those who are not.
In addition, this seminar also clarified the confusions that may occur at the polling station on the Election Day. All the voters are required to know their rights to ensure all the votes cast in the election are valid.
In the next 4 hours, training on the roles and responsibilities of a Counting Agent (CA) as well as an overview of what happens at a Polling Station on Election Day was conducted by the experienced ROSE trainers. Each participant was given different role and different situations at a polling station. The use of role-play in training was well received and the participants gained a lot of knowledge from it. The training ended at 6pm. Eight participants were registered to be the PA or CA in the coming Sarawak state election.
