Six states will finally go to the polls on Saturday, 12 August, 38 weeks after last November’s general election.
About 9.8 million voters are eligible to cast their ballots, including some 600,000 first-time voters following the lowering of the minimum voting age to 18.

BFM talks to Bersih chairperson Thomas Fann, Chairperson about the expectations come polling day, and why your vote is still important.
