The recent Johor election indicated repeated bad practices by the candidates and political parties in sourcing and managing the personnel required for polling and counting agents during the election.

As each constituency is unique, organising your polling and counting agents, from a human resource point of view, is a formidable task

This webinar is aimed at all those who are involved in organising and sourcing polling and counting agents for future elections.

Part 1 discusses on how you should estimate the number of polling and counting agents required and how to encourage people to participate.

Part 2 discusses the specific preparations needed in competitive or marginal seats
