SINGAPORE - The police have released a list of 18 designated assembly centres where electoral candidates, their supporters and members of the public can gather to await the announcement of results after the polls close at 8pm on Polling Day (Sept 11).
A candidate or his election agent can apply for permits for the assembly centres at the Police Elections Permit Office between 8.30am and 2.30pm on Wednesday, Sept 9, and Thursday, Sept 10.
The police have grouped the electoral divisions into three zones. No fees will be levied for permits.
Application forms for the permit can be obtained from the Police Elections Permit Office or downloaded from the police website at www.spf.gov.sg/elections.
Contesting parties and independent candidates can apply for only one assembly centre site in each zone that it is contesting in, the police said.
A ballot will be held if there is more than one applicant for a particular assembly centre site.
Contesting parties and independent candidates can also apply for a permit to use an indoor site within the zone that they are contesting in as an assembly centre.
The list of assembly centres allocated will be announced on Sept 10 after permit applications close.
