SINGAPORE - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has directed the Registration Officer from the Elections Department to revise the registers of electors before April 30.

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

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