#PulangMengundi is a trend that went viral all over social media beginning early last week.

It all started when Malaysians received news that the General Elections are set for May 9. Ever since the #PulangMengundi went viral on the Twitterverse, it was filled with interactions between Malaysians who wanted to return home to vote.

Plenty of Malaysians working in Singapore were concerned regarding taking time off to vote as it falls right smack in the middle of a work week as well as the expensive travel costs.

From #PulangMengundi to #CarpoolGE14, Malaysians unite to ensure voters turn up. 

Jom Undi!
