The website also tells you your electoral division, polling district, and polling station too.

This way, you won’t have to guesstimate the number of people at the station, and can safely avoid the queues, especially if you’re accompanying an elderly person.

Bring your NRIC & gloves

Voting is a little different this year, so do remember to stay safe and sanitise your hands before and after you’ve cast your vote.

Here’s an infographic we’ve compiled for your reference, as a checklist with what steps to take before voting.

Voters are expected to wear disposable gloves during the process, so if you’d like to reduce waste, you can bring a pair of your own along with you to the polls.

Stay safe & vote wisely

General Election 2020 is an election like no other — both literally and figuratively.

Our nation will be up against challenges beyond this General Election, and we’ll need effective ideas and strategies to see us through future storms.

So it’s crucial to make your voice heard by heading down to the polls to show your support for your party of choice. All the best to our young first-time voters & stay safe.
