Registers of Electors open for public inspection from 15 to 28 June

SINGAPORE —The recently revised Registers of Electors are now open for public inspection from Thursday (15 June) to the 28th this month.

The updated registers include the names of all eligible voters as of 1 June 2023, providing an opportunity for citizens to verify their particulars and ensure their inclusion in future elections.

The Singapore Elections Department (ELD) announced on Wednesday (14 June) that Singapore citizens can check their particulars electronically or physically.

These options include Voter Services on the Elections Department (ELD) website (, “My Profile” on the Singpass App, or “Home” on the LifeSG App or LifeSG portal (

For individuals who are unable to check their details electronically, they have the option to visit community centres/clubs, ServiceSG centres, or the ELD office.

Appointments can be made through the ELD website or by calling 1800-225-5353.

To qualify for voting in the election, Singaporean citizens must meet the following criteria: be aged 21 and above, possess a residential address in Singapore, and not be disqualified from being an elector as per the prevailing laws.

Oversea Singaporeans can check their particulars at Singapore overseas missions

Additionally, Singaporeans residing overseas can check their particulars at Singapore overseas missions that are serving as overseas registration centres.

During the inspection period, a person may:

  • Submit a claim to include his name (if it has been omitted) or update his particulars (i.e., name and NRIC address) in the registers if his particulars in the registers are reflected differently from his NRIC; and
  • Submit an objection to remove a name from the register for the electoral division that the person is in.

Claims and objections can be submitted online through Voter Services at the ELD website or in person at community centres/clubs, ServiceSG centres, the ELD office, or Singapore overseas missions serving as overseas registration centres.

To ensure transparency, a comprehensive list of claims, known as the claimant list, will be made available for inspection from July 12 to July 19, 2023.

Interested individuals can access this list at community centres/clubs, ServiceSG centres within their respective electoral divisions, the ELD office, or Singapore overseas missions serving as overseas registration centres.

In the case of individuals whose names were removed from the registers due to failure to vote in a previous election, they have the opportunity to apply for the restoration of their names.

By visiting Voter Services on the ELD website, these individuals can initiate the process and secure their eligibility to vote in future elections. They are encouraged to apply early.

“Under the law, we will not be able to restore their names during the period from the date the Writ for an Election is issued until after Nomination Day if the election is not contested, or until after Polling Day if a poll is to be taken, ” the statement reminded.

The initiative to open the Registers of Electors for public inspection aims to encourage civic participation and ensure the accuracy of voter information.

Singaporean citizens are urged to take advantage of this opportunity to verify their registration details and contribute to the democratic process.

For further information and assistance, individuals can visit the Elections Department website at or contact the ELD via the designated helpline at 1800-225-5353.

The current President, Halimah Yacob, announced in May that she would not be seeking re-election.

Following her decision, Senior Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam expressed his intention to leave politics and his position in the People’s Action Party (PAP) to participate in the election.

Following Tharman’s announcement,  George Goh, the founder of Harvey Norman Ossia, declared his intention to run for the Singapore presidency on Monday (12 June).
