Polling Day in Singapore in 2020

The government was required to call an election by April 2021.

About Elections in Singapore

General elections in Singapore must be held within three months after five years have elapsed from the date of the first sitting of a particular Parliament of Singapore. 

Under the law, Polling Day at any General Election is a public holiday and every employer should allow every elector in his employ a reasonable period of time for voting. This is needed as voting is compulsory.

Unless the returning officer decides otherwise, polling stations are open from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm Voters must go to the polling stations assigned to them.
