To the polls we shall go, Saturday March 8 - the date announced by EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abul Rahman today.

Here's the report from Bernama:

Malaysians Go To The Polls On March 8

PUTRAJAYA, Feb 14 (Bernama) -- Polling for the general election will be held on March 8 and nominations on Feb 24, the Election Commission (EC) announced today.

EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman said the election would involve 222 parliamentary and 505 state seats in 12 states except for Sarawak which held its state election in 2006.

He said 10,922,139 were eligible to cast their votes based on the electoral roll gazetted on Feb 5.Abdul Rashid made the announcement at the EC headquarters here at 11.40am.

The announcement was carried live by RTM dan TV3.

BTW, today I received a piece of slip Maklumat Pengundi Pilihanraya 2008 - compliments from the Barisan Nasional - with my IC number, name, address, names of the State and Parliamentary constituencies, my voting centre, and photos of the BN Chairman (Pak Lah) and Selangor MB Dr Khir Toyo, a marked cross next to the Dacing symbol and the words "Undilah Barisan Nasional" below it.

So efficient. No?
