Election day was set during the flooding season causing several delays during voting while certain areas had to put on hold.
However, this does not stop the voters to carry out their duty as a citizen.
News excerpts have shown that many areas, especially in the Northern Peninsular, appeared to have witnessed such patriotic moves from the public on election day.
Data shows that the storm and the heavy downpour were a part of the media focus during election day as several polling places were flooded.
Among all, 11 polling centres in Baram have to be put on hold resulting in the suspension of voting for that seat.
