Tokyo (Reportase One) – The Tokyo Overseas Election Committee (PPLN) submitted a total of 24,059 voters to the General Elections Commission (KPU) as the Temporary Overseas Voter List (DPSLN) for the 2024 election.

PPLN Tokyo Chairperson Dina Faoziah told Reportase One in Tokyo, Thursday, that out of a total of 24,059 voters, 14,008 were male voters and 10,051 were female voters.

“We submitted the data to the KPU,” said Dina Faoziah.

PPLN Tokyo also invites Indonesian citizens (WNI) in Japan to check whether their data has been verified, not verified or not registered.

“These are categories that we created ourselves to make it easier for us to process voter data,” said Dina.

Verified means that it has gone through the matching and research process (co-checking), not yet verified, that is, the data has been included in the List of Potential Voters for Overseas Elections (DP4LN) but not yet-co-checked (matching and research).

“The unregistered category means that anyone who enters their name and date of birth and then does not find it, will become a potential voter in the DPSHP (Revised Provisional Voter List) later,” said Dina.

After coordinating with the Tokyo LN Panwaslu and KPU, Dina said that her party also plans to open more than one Overseas Polling Station (TPSLN) because the number of voters who will vote at TPSLN is confirmed to have exceeded 500 people as of April 5, 2023.

According to KPU Decree No. 55 of 2023, PPLN maps voters into TPSLN with a maximum of 500 voters and is adjusted to local country conditions.

Apart from that, he continued, voters use the postal method which is expected to be much more like in the 2019 election.

“We don’t know the exact number yet, but the number of voters by post is far more than the number of TPSLN voters,” said Dina.

This is because the working area of ​​the Tokyo PPLN covers 30 prefectures stretching from Hokkaido to Okinawa.

Based on data from the General Election Commission, in the 2019 election there were a total of 16,799 permanent voters in Japan.

In detail, 9,684 male voters and 7,115 female voters. The number of voters who cast their votes by post dominated, namely 15,617 voters compared to those who cast their votes via TPS, namely 1,182 voters.
