Singapore voter rolls updated, open for online inspection

Singapore

SINGAPORE'S revised voter rolls have been certified and are open for public inspection, the Elections Department (ELD) said in a media statement released on Wednesday.

There are 2,653,942 electors, and eligible voters can check their particulars in the Registers of Electors electronically - through the Elections Department website and via the SingPass Mobile app.

Singaporeans whose names were removed from the registers for failing to vote at a previous election can apply to have their names restored, the ELD added. They are encouraged to apply early, as applications will close with the issue of the writ of election.

Those living overseas can check their particulars at Singapore overseas missions that serve as polling stations. Citizens abroad whose names are listed in the registers of electors and who have resided in Singapore for at least 30 days between March 1, 2017, and February 2020 can also apply to vote as overseas electors in future elections.

Re-registration is required for overseas voters with each revision of the registers. Under the law, registers may be revised not later than three years after the last general election. THE STRAITS TIMES
