Revised voter rolls certified; open for public inspection

SINGAPORE'S revised voter rolls have been certified and are open for public inspection as of Thursday, the Elections Department(ELD) said in a media statement released the same day.

There are a total of 2,411,188 electors, and eligible voters can check their particulars in the Registers of Electors - through the Elections Department website, at its premises along Prinsep Link or at community centres and clubs.

Those living overseas can check their particulars at 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 Feb 1 2011 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.

Under the law, registers may be revised not later than three years after the last general election.
