After Nomination Day, and if an overseas elector’s electoral division is contested, a poll letter will be mailed to him at the overseas corresponding address that is provided at the point when he registered to be an overseas elector.
The poll letter will state his electoral division, the overseas polling station allotted to him, as well as the polling date and hours for that overseas polling station. A similar poll letter will also be sent to him via email if he had provided the Elections Department with an email address.
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 Poll Letter
If the overseas elector does not receive both poll letters before Polling Day, he can obtain a replacement poll letter through the following ways:
- Print out the ePoll letter online via the Services provided on this website using Singpass; or
- Seek over-the-counter assistance at the Overseas Mission that serves as an overseas polling station to print out the ePoll letter.
Each overseas elector is allowed to vote only once during an election, either at the overseas polling station or local polling station allotted to him. Any overseas elector who goes to vote at the local polling station 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.
