Voting Overseas

Any Singapore citizen residing overseas who satisfies the qualifying criteria may apply to the Elections Department to be registered as an overseas elector to cast his vote at one of the 10 overseas polling stations. Besides the overseas polling station that is allotted to him, the person will also be allotted a polling station in Singapore during an election, where he can go to cast his vote if he is back in Singapore on Polling Day.

The overseas polling stations are located within 10 designated Singapore Overseas Missions in countries/cities with significant number of Singaporeans.

During an election, the date and hours of the overseas polls will be published in the Singapore Government Gazette and announced through the Singapore media, as well as the websites of the Elections Department and Overseas Missions that serve as overseas polling stations.

Every overseas elector is allowed to vote only once during an election either at the overseas polling station or local polling station that has been allotted to him. Any overseas elector who goes to vote at the local polling station allotted to him will be required to make a declaration that he had not voted in the same election before he can be issued with a ballot paper.

Check your voting eligibility and apply to vote at one of the 10 overseas polling stations via Voters Services using Singpass.

ePoll Letter

After Nomination Day, and if an overseas elector’s electoral division is contested in a Parliamentary Election or if a Presidential Election is contested, a poll letter will be emailed to him at the email address that is provided to Elections Department at the point when he registered to be an overseas elector.

The ePoll letter will state his electoral division, the overseas polling station he selected at the point of registration, as well as the polling date and hours for that overseas polling station.

In addition, a poll card informing the overseas elector of his allotted polling station in Singapore will also be mailed to his latest Local Contact Address in Singapore registered with the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority. This is for the overseas elector to cast his vote locally if he happens to be back in Singapore on Polling Day.

Replacement of ePoll Letter

If the overseas elector does not receive his poll letter in his email before Polling Day, he can access his Poll letter online via the Voter Services using Singpass.
