Voting Eligibility

Am I eligible to vote?
You can vote if your name is in the certified register of electors (RE) for an electoral division (constituency). Your name will be included in the RE before polling day if you are:

** A Singapore citizen;
** At least 21 years of age;
** Not disqualified from being an elector under any prevailing law
** (a) Registered Singapore address on NRIC or,
** (b) If residing overseas, has registered a Local Contact Address (LCA).

How is voting eligibility for this election determined?
The list of voters for this election is based on the Registers of Electors prepared on 1 March 2020. Singaporeans who turned 21 years of age after 1 March 2020 will not be in the Registers.

Why do I need to vote?
Voting is compulsory in Singapore. It is a fundamental right of citizenship and a civic responsibility of citizens to choose and elect their leaders in a democracy. All Singapore citizens whose names are in the Registers of Electors have to cast their votes on Polling Day.

What happens if I don’t vote?
If you are unable to vote on Polling Day, your name will be removed from the Registers of Electors after the election. You may apply to restore your name online at Voter Services, using your SingPass, so that you will be eligible to vote in future elections in Singapore.

How do I check if I am eligible to vote?
You may check your eligibility as follows:
** Online at the Elections Department website using your SingPass;
** At community centres/clubs (with NRIC/passport);
** At the Elections Department office, (with NRIC/passport);
** Call ELD’s hotline: 1800 225 5353 or
** At Singapore overseas missions that serve as overseas polling stations (with NRIC/passport).

Why am I not eligible to vote?
Your voting eligibility is dependent on your citizenship, age and whether you have voted in the last election.

What if I did not vote in the previous election?
If you failed to vote at a previous election:
** Your name will be removed from the certified register of electors of the electoral division that you belong to.
** You cannot vote at subsequent presidential and parliamentary elections.

You may submit an online application using your SingPass to restore your name to the register. Or you may seek over-the-counter assistance at any community centre/club or the Elections Department. A fee of $50 will be imposed if you do not have a valid reason for not voting. Early application for restoration of name to the Registers of Electors is strongly encouraged. No restoration can be made once a Writ for an election is issued.

Who are non-voters?
Non-voters are Singapore citizens who meet the qualifying criteria, but failed to vote at a previous election. They have also not restored their names to the Registers of Electors.

Can a permanent resident vote?
Permanent residents are not eligible to vote in Singapore.
