Revised voter rolls now open for public inspection

SINGAPORE - The revised registers of electors have been certified and are now open for public inspection.

In a statement today, the Elections Department revealed that there are a total of 2,460,484 voters on the rolls.

Eligible voters may check their particulars at the Elections Department or at community centres with their NRIC or passport, or online at the Elections Department website.

Those overseas can also check their particulars at the 10 overseas missions that serve as overseas registration centres.

People whose names were removed from the voter rolls because they failed to vote at a previous election may continue to apply to have their names restored, the Elections Department said.

Meanwhile, eligible voters who are overseas, and who have resided in Singapore for at least 30 days between Feb 1, 2012 and Jan 31, 2015, may register as overseas electors to vote at a designated overseas polling station.

With the revision to the rolls, Singaporeans overseas who had previously registered as overseas voters will also need to re-register.

The Elections Department added that those applying to restore their names to the rolls or to register as an overseas voter should do so early, as applications will close when the Writ of Election is issued.
