Singapore citizens located overseas will be able to cast their votes for the 2015 General Election at 10 designated overseas polling stations, the Elections Department announced in a press release on Thursday (Sept 3). The Singapore Consulate-General in Dubai will be the newest added to the list, after it was designated an overseas polling station this year. The other overseas polling stations are in London, Tokyo, Beijing, Washington, Hong Kong, Shanghai, San Francisco, New York and Canberra. They are all places where a significant number of Singaporeans are present.
The specific date and hours of the overseas polls will be announced through the Singapore media, as well as on the websites of the Elections Department, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the respective Overseas Missions.
Registration as an overseas elector has been suspended after the Writ of Election was issued on Aug 25, and will remain suspended until Polling Day on Sept 11.
All overseas electors who are eligible for voting at an overseas polling station will receive a poll letter from the Elections Department mailed to his or her overseas address.
