GE2020 Electoral Map Tells You Where Each Party Is Contesting
Technology is wonderful when used right. With how hard it can be to track which candidates are contesting for GE2020, visual details can make it easier for people looking up their constituency.
This interactive map on Mapbox, made by Gerald Png, will give you, at a glance, where every party and their candidates are contesting.
Customise the interactive GE2020 map
There are a few options for users to filter out what they wish to see.
For example, you can enable all parties or select just one — there’s also an Independent option.
Let’s say we want to see where the Progress Singapore Party (PSP) are contesting. A mere 2 clicks later and we can get this view:
A hover over one of the highlighted areas will show the user the incumbents, who are contesting, and who their opponents will be.

The map gives us a clear idea of how the competing parties stack up against each other in the same constituency.
Map shows where each party is contesting

- Seeing which party is contesting where
There are so many opposition parties in Singapore — at least 10 are contesting, and that’s even before counting independent candidates.
Most announcements made so far have been fragmented and lost in a torrent of news reports snacking on drip-fed information, so this map is a one-stop portal for information on where each party is going.
Interactive map for your GE popcorn needs
With this interactive map, your need to look at Singapore in multi-coloured and arbitrarily-drawn lines can be satiated.
