Singapore's voter rolls being revised to ensure they are up to date

Singapore's voter rolls are being revised to ensure they are current.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has directed that a revision of the Registers of Electors be made and completed by March 31.

His notice was published in the Government Gazette on Thursday evening.

This fulfills a requirement in the Parliamentary Elections Act that voter rolls be updated not more than three years after a general election.

The deadline for revision is May 6 this year, as the last general election was held on May 7 in 2011.

The ELD will give more details about public inspection of the revised voter rolls.
