We've reached the halfway mark of campaigning for the state election, considered quite a critical juncture.

And to get an on the ground understanding of the situation at this point in time.

Let's cross over to my colleague Sarah Abdullah, who is currently in Sibu.

Hi Sarah, what's the situation in Sibu, and from your observations, have electorates locked in their choices yet?

Early Voting Preparations

Sarah, tomorrow, early voters will cast their ballots.

Can you shed some light as to how preparations are going by the Election Commission?

Ballot Papers Delivered

The commission also said it has distributed ballot papers and indelible ink, to be used on polling day on May 7, to the respective voting centres in rural and interior areas of Sarawak via air transport.

The ballot papers and the ink were sent to 41 constituencies in three zones, namely Miri, Sibu and Sri Aman, using helicopters from Hornbill Airways today.

Speaking when inspecting the election materials in Kuching, he also said for the N1 to N37 state seats, the ballot papers were collected by the respective returning officers while the rest were delivered via helicopters.

Printing of the ballot papers was carried out since April 25th.

Points Of Interest In Sibu

Now, Sarah, you've been in Sibu for over a week and although election fever is quite high at the moment, let's stray away from talk on the polls.

I understand you've been doing some exploring there, any points of interest?
