Voting will be done in-person.
Voters will be given recommended two-hour time slots to visit polling stations to reduce crowding. Morning slots will be reserved for seniors who are 65 years and older so they can vote before others.
Those who visit the polling stations have to observe safe distancing and wear protective gear such as masks.
There will be temperature screening at the stations to sieve out those with fever or respiratory symptoms. The ELD will decide whether these groups will be allowed to vote based on the prevailing Covid-19 situation during the polls.
Voter registration will be done electronically, with people scanning their identity cards instead of handing them to officials. Voters will have to pull down their masks when election officials have to verify their identity vis-a-vis their NRIC.
Before voters can collect their ballot paper, they have to sanitise their hands and put on disposable gloves that will be given to them.
New self-inking pens, which will allow voters to easily stamp an “X” for the party of their choice, will be used. This will help older voters who have difficulty gripping regular pens. Voters will also be allowed to use their own pens if they wish.
Cleaners will be deployed at all polling stations to clean items and areas described as “common touch-points” such as the self-inking pens and polling booths. They will do so at least once every half an hour.
