S’pore voter rolls updated; public inspection opens from June 19


SINGAPORE – Singapore’s voter rolls have been updated to contain the names of all eligible electors as at June 1, 2024, and will be open for public inspection from June 19 till July 2.

The exercise to bring the registers up to date comes amid speculation that the next general election, which must be held by November 2025, may be called as early as September.

Announcing the update in a statement on June 18, the Elections Department (ELD) said Singapore citizens can check their particulars in the Registers of Electors electronically via “Voter Services” on the ELD website, or under “My Profile” on the Singpass mobile application.

If their names have been left out or their particulars are different from what is shown on their NRIC, they can file a claim during the inspection period.

They may also submit an objection to remove a name from the register for the electoral division that the person is in during this time.

A person is eligible to vote if he is a Singapore citizen aged 21 and above with a Singapore residential address or local contact address, and is not disqualified as an elector under any written law.

The ELD said the claims and objections may be submitted through its website, or in person at its office at 11 Novena Rise, the 110 community clubs or centres and ServiceSG centres across the country, as well as the 10 Singapore overseas missions serving as overseas registration centres.
