The Elections Department reminded Singaporeans who have yet to check their particulars in the revised registers of electors are reminded to do so by next Monday (Mar 9).
The registers of electors have been revised to include the names of all qualified electors as of Feb 1, and have been open for public inspection since Feb 24. Singaporeans may check their particulars through four channels:
Online at the Elections Department website
At community centres or clubs
At Singapore overseas missions that serve as overseas registration centres
At the Elections Department, located at 11 Prinsep Link, Singapore 187949
The latter three methods will require the individual's NRIC or passport.
INCLUSION AND REMOVAL OF NAMES FROM REGISTERS
During the inspection period, Singaporeans are allowed to submit a claim to include their names or update particulars in the registers, as well as to submit an objection to remove a name from the revised registers, the department said in a press release on Wednesday (Mar 4).
These changes can be made via the four methods stated above. Claims and objections submitted online must be done via SingPass.
RESTORATION OF NAMES AND REGISTRATION AS OVERSEAS ELECTOR
Singaporeans whose names were removed from the registers of electors for failing to vote at a previous election may apply to restore their names to the registers.
Overseas Singaporeans, whose names are listed in the registers and who have resided in Singapore for at least 30 days between Feb 1, 2012 and Jan 31, 2015 may register as overseas electors.
Following the revision of the registers, overseas Singaporeans who have been registered earlier as overseas electors will also have to re-register to vote at any one of the designated overseas polling stations.
The registrations can be done through the abovementioned channels. Applications will close with the issuance of the Writ of Election.
