Workers sort and fold ballot papers for the 2019 Jakarta Legislative Council election at the warehouse of the General Elections Commission (KPU) in Central Jakarta on Thursday (21/02/2019). The sorting and folding of the ballot papers for the 2019 election is scheduled to be completed within 20 days.

JAKARTA, KOMPAS – Voters that have transferred their registration are concentrated in certain regions for the 2019 election, raising concerns that polling stations in these regions could experience a shortage in ballot papers. The General Elections Commission (KPU) only provides ballot papers for polling stations according to the figures of the final voters list (DPT), plus 2 percent extra ballots.

Concerns were raised at a meeting on the provisional voter list (DPTb) on Thursday (21/2/2019) over the potential concentration of transferee voters in certain regions. A legal basis was urgently needed to provide additional ballot papers to polling stations in these regions, so transferee voters could exercise their right to vote.
