Eligible voters who failed to cast their votes in the Presidential Election last month will have their names expunged from the Registers of Electors in accordance with Section 26 of the Presidential Elections Act. Non-voters will lose their eligibility to vote or stand as a candidate at future elections if their names are not restored to the Registers of Electors.
Checking of non-voter names that will be expunged from the Registers of Electors can be done from September 27 onwards via the eServices at www.elections.gov.sg, or at the Elections Department and community centres/clubs. The restoration of non-voters’ names to the Registers of Electors will close once the Writ of Election is issued for the next election.
The Elections Department advises non-voters who failed to vote during the Presidential Election 2011 or any previous election to restore their names to the Registers of Electors.
They can do so online via the Elections Department website, or through a hard copy application form available from the department or any community centre/club during normal business hours. The form can also be downloaded from the Elections Department website.
Applicants who have successfully restored their names to the Registers will receive notification within a month from the Elections Department.
