SINGAPORE - The registers of electors for the next general election have been certified, the Elections Department (ELD) said in a statement on Monday (July 27).

There are a total of 2,460,977 electors in the registers, ELD said. Voters can check their particulars in person at the Elections Department, online at the ELD website, at community centres and clubs, and at selected Singapore overseas missions.

Citizens need to bring their identity card (NRIC) or passport when verifying the registers in person.

The overseas missions that serve as overseas registration centres are listed below.

Those whose names were removed from the registers of electors for failing to vote at a previous election may apply to have their names restored to the registers, so that they can vote at the next general and subsequent elections, ELD said.

Overseas Singaporeans, whose names are listed in the registers of electors and have resided in Singapore for an aggregate of at least 30 days during the three-year period between Feb 1, 2012, and Jan 31, 2015, and who wish to vote at one of the designated overseas polling stations, are encouraged to register as overseas electors.

Applications will close for both local and overseas voters with the issue of the writ of election.
