The Election Commission (KPU) asks all citizens to immediately register themselves for electronic-Resident Identification Card (e-KTP) before the finalization of Voters List (DPT). After finalization, any unregistered voter will have to administer a certification letter at the Civil Registry Office if he/she want to vote in the upcoming election.
â€œAny citizen who has been registered in the AC-KWK form needs to register for e-KTP no later than December. Otherwise, the will have to administer a certification letter at the Civil Registry Office. They donâ€™t have to receive the e-KTP first if they want to vote on the polling day. What matters is that they have already been registered for the e-KTP,â€ says the Chairman of KPU of South Jakarta, Muhammad Iqbal, during a plenary meeting of KPU in South Jakarta (11/01).
AC KWK form is a special form that contains the data regarding potential voters who havenâ€™t register for and havenâ€™t receive their e-KTP. The form is distributed by Neighborhood Administration (RT) and Hamlet Administration (RW).
â€œWe will immediately send the form to the municipality offices. The municipality will then distribute the form to RT and RW,â€ says Iqbal.
Today, KPUs in 101 electoral areas that will organize local elections on February 15 2017 will hold a meeting to finalize the Temporary Voters List (DPS). The DPS will the be updated until December 2016 before being finalized into DPT.
