WHEN AND WHERE TO VOTE?
You will receive a poll card if you are registered as an elector and your constituency is contested.

Your Poll Card will give you the location of the polling station you are assigned to vote at the election. You are only allowed to vote at that polling station.

  • REMEMBER : YOU CAN ONLY VOTE ONCE AT AN ELECTION
 
Voting Within Singapore
You will be assigned to vote at a local polling station near to your address in the register of electors.

Polling stations in Singapore are usually located within schools, Community Centres/Clubs or void decks/precinct pavilions in public housing estates. The addresses of all polling stations for an election in a constituency will be available in this website immediately after the Nomination Day for that election.

Polling stations in Singapore will normally be opened from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Polling Day for you to cast your vote. You can go to your assigned polling station at any time during those hours to cast your vote – you need not rush to vote. From our experience, the queues of voters and hence the waiting time for voting tend to be longest in the morning. However, please avoid going to vote too late as no more ballot papers will be issued to voters who are still in the queues when polling closes at 8 p.m.
 
Voting Overseas
When you register to vote overseas, you will be assigned to vote at one of the overseas polling stations located within Singapore's High Commissions, Embassies or Consulates.

Not all of Singapore's High Commissions, Embassies or Consulates have been designated as overseas polling stations as many do not have the necessary security and/or numbers of personnel to conduct an election.
