PRIME Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Monday directed the Registration Officer to revise the registers of electors, in a bid to bring registers up to date.

The revision, in accordance with section 14 (1) of the Parliamentary Elections Act, has been directed by Mr Lee to be completed on or before April 30, 2015, according to a statement released by the Elections Department.

The last registers revision was in Feb 2014.

To qualify as an elector, a person has to be a Singapore citizen and 21 years old and above as of Feb 1, 2015, and not disqualified as an elector under any written law.

In addition, the person must have a Singapore residential address registered with the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority as of Feb 1, 2015, so that his or her name can be entered or retained in the register for a constituency.

The Elections Department will be providing more details on how Singaporeans can check the registers in the later part of February.
