Revised voter rolls now certified; open for public inspection

SINGAPORE - The revised voter rolls have been certified and are now open for public inspection, the Elections Department (ELD) said in a statement on Tuesday.

There are a total of 2,460,484 electors, and eligible voters can check their particulars in the Registers of Electors through the Elections Department website, at its Prinsep Link premises, or at community centres and clubs.

Those living overseas can also check their particulars at the 10 Singapore overseas missions that serve as polling stations.

Singaporeans whose names were removed from the registers for failing to vote at a previous election can apply to have their names restored, the ELD added.

They are encouraged to apply early, as applications will close with the issue of the writ of election.

Citizens abroad whose names are listed in the registers of electors and who have resided in Singapore for at least 30 days between 1 Feb 2012 and Jan 31 this year can also apply as overseas electors to vote in future elections.

Re-registration is required for overseas voters with each revision of the registers.
