SINGAPOREANS living overseas can now register in the electoral roll from February 23 via the Elections Department website, in person, or by post.
Overseas citizens who have resided in Singapore for at least 30 days within three years before February this year, can also apply to be registered as an overseas elector to vote.
Forms are available at the Elections Department located at Prinsep Link. An NRIC number and SingPass is required for those who wish to apply online at www.elections.gov.sg.
Singaporeans who reside in the country and are aged 21 years old and above as on February 1 2010, will have their names automatically entered in the Registers of Electors. However, they are advised to check that their addresses listed are accurate.
Anyone whose names were expunged from the Registers for failing to vote at a previous election, can apply to have their names restored as well.
The public can check www.elections.gov.sg to ensure that their name is listed under the correct address, whether it is omitted from an Register and to submit an objection against the name of any person appearing in the Register of the same Consitituency for which he or she is an elector.
