What To Prepare As a First Time Voter


2020 Singaporean General Election 2020 (GE2020) will be on Friday, 10 July 2020.


Who needs to vote?

If you’re a Singaporean citizen who is 21 years old as of 1 March 2020, it is compulsory for you to vote during GE2020.

For the official criteria, you’re eligible if you:

  1. Are a Singapore citizen

  2. Are at least 21 years of age (before 1 March 2020)

  3. Are not disqualified from being an elector

  4. Have a registered Singapore address on your NRIC, OR, a registered Local Contact Address if you’re residing overseas

What are the voting processes?

1. The day before voting day

A Poll Card will be mailed to you with the address of your designated polling station.

For GE2020, an e-Poll Card will also be issued — this can be accessed via your SingPass mobile app.

While official polling hours are from 8am to 8pm.

You’ll also be allotted a 2-hour time-slot to prevent crowding at the polling station.

If you’ve missed your designated time-slot, you can still head down anytime between 12pm to 8pm to cast your vote.

  • 2. Polling Day itself

  1. Report to the polling station during your designated time-slot.

  2. Remember to bring along an original, official form of photo identification:

  • NRIC

  • identity cards issued by the Ministry of Defence, Singapore Police Force or Singapore Civil Defence Force

  • Passport

  • Poll Card

Step 1: Temperature Screening

Step 2: Electronic Registration

Step 3: Collect the ballot paper

Step 4: Vote

We hope that this will get you excited and prepare you well for first time voters!
