eRegistration pilot at Presidential Election 2017
The Elections Department (ELD) will introduce electronic registration (eRegistration) of voters at polling stations to shorten the voter registration process.
25 Aug 2017
The Elections Department (ELD) will introduce electronic registration (eRegistration) of voters at polling stations to shorten the voter registration process. This will be piloted in three constituencies, at Chua Chu Kang GRC, Tanjong Pagar GRC and Yuhua SMC at Presidential Election (PE) 2017.
To familiarise voters with the eRegistration process, ELD will organise roadshows at 11 Community Centres (CCs) in the three constituencies before Polling Day. (Please refer to Annex for the roadshow venues and timings.) We welcome voters to visit the roadshows to try out the new registration process and provide us with feedback.
The current registration procedure requires an election official to manually search for and strike off the voter’s name in the hard-copy Polling Station Register. eRegistration leverages technology to shorten the registration process by scanning the voter’s NRIC electronically to register the voter. This decreases the waiting time for voters at polling stations and reduces the number of election officials required to serve the same number of voters at a polling station.
There is no change to the voting process with eRegistration. Only the medium for registering voters is different.
