Singapore's revised registers of electors open for public inspection

SINGAPORE - A total of 2,411,188 electors have been certified, and registers are now available for public inspection, the Government said on Thursday.

In a statement, the Elections Department said that those whose names were removed for failing to vote at a previous election may apply to have their names restored to the registers, so that they can vote at future elections.

Applications will close with the issue of the writ of election.

All Singapore Citizens may check their particulars in the registers via the following methods:

(a) Online at the Elections Department website (http://www.eld.gov.sg);

(b) At community centres/clubs (with NRIC/passport);

(c) At Singapore overseas missions that serve as overseas polling stations (with NRIC/passport); and

(d) At Elections Department (with NRIC/passport). Restoration of name to registers

Non-voters may apply to have their names restored to the registers of electors online at the Elections Department website, or in person at community centres/clubs, Singapore overseas missions that serve as overseas polling stations and Elections Department.

Registration as overseas elector

Overseas Singaporeans, whose names are listed in the registers of electors and have resided in Singapore for a total of at least 30 days during the 3-year period between Feb 1, 2011 and Jan 31, 2014, may apply to register as overseas electors and vote at overseas polling stations in future elections.

Registration for overseas Singaporeans will close once the writ of election is issued. Re-registration as an overseas elector is required with each revision of the registers.

Under the law, the registers may be revised from time to time, but in any case not later than 3 years after the last general election.

Overseas Singaporeans may register as overseas electors online at the Elections Department website, or in person at community centres/clubs, Singapore overseas missions that serve as overseas polling stations and Elections Department.
