“It is not like they won’t get the chance to vote. We already gathered the voter-list there. Those villages are under the village-track of Kyaung Ywa. So, under the Kyaung Ywa Village-track, they have to vote. There is no village in Ye Township that won’t be allowed to vote. We already collected the voter-list from all villages,” according to Ye Township Election Sub-commission.
The Ye Township Election Sub-commission stated that there are 6118 eligible voters from those villages, in Kyaung Yaw Village-track, with 2941 male voters and 3177 female voters.

The stated villages are about 3 to 12 miles away from Kyaung Ywa Village, and the villages are accessible by boats through Yechaungpayar river in rainy season and by 4W trucks during winter or summer.
