Take the Day Off and Vote

Indonesia Goes to the Polls.

(7/5/2004) Millions of Indonesians went to neighborhood polling places on Monday, July 5, 2004, to participate in their first direct election of a President and Vice-President. A field of candidates representing 5 parties are vying for the right to lead the Republic for the next 5 years.

Contest rules stipulate that should any candidate fail to garner at least 51% of the votes cast, a second and final run-off election will be held between the top two sets of candidates on September 20, 2005.

Take the Day Off and Vote

In order to facilitate and encourage Indonesians to get out and vote, election day has been declared an official public holiday.
