KOTA KINABALU: None of the polling district centres in Sabah were affected by floods, although some areas were flooded following non-stop rain since last night.
Sabah police commissioner Idris Abdullah said polling had been proceeding smoothly in the general election despite cloudy weather and rain in some districts.
“A total of 874 polling stations have opened throughout Sabah with the use of helicopters to transport ballot boxes to 87 remote areas that cannot be accessed by road.
“The ballot boxes have safely reached all polling stations,” he said in a statement.
