ELD: Around 2.65 million S'poreans eligible for voting in next GE, revised voter rolls open for public inspection online

A total of 2,653,942 Singaporeans are eligible to cast their ballots in the next general election (GE), which must be held by April next year.
The Elections Department (ELD) in a statement today (15 Apr) said that this year’s total number of electors is around 59,000 more than the 2,594,740 recorded in the last revision of voter rolls in Apr a year ago.
The newly revised roll of voters, said ELD, is now open for public inspection online.
Eligible voters can check their particulars in the Register of Electors via the ELD website or the SingPass Mobile app.
The Department encouraged Singaporeans whose names were removed from the registers for not voting in a previous election to apply to have their names restored as early as possible.
This is because it will no longer accept such applications once the writ of election is issued.
Singaporeans residing abroad can check their particulars at Singapore overseas missions that serve as polling stations.
Overseas Singaporeans — whose names are listed in the registers of electors and who have resided in Singapore for at least 30 days between March 1, 2017 and February this year — can also apply as overseas electors to vote in future elections.
Citizens living and voting abroad are required to re-register with each revision of the registers.
Under the law, registers must be revised not later than three years after the last GE. The Prime Minister has the authority to call for revisions periodically.
