You are dead! Therefore you cannot vote

Ho Heng Tong, 53, got the shock of his life after checking his voter registration status on the Election  Commission's (EC) website last week, when he found that his name was removed as the National Registration Department (NRD) had listed him as deceased.

Ho, who had already voted six times before prior to being declared dead, then went to the Putrajaya and Federal Territories EC offices to prove that he is very much alive and demand reinstatement on the electoral rolls.

While acknowledging that Ho is still alive, EC officials however told him to register as a new voter and refused to reinstate him into the current role - Malaysiakini
