Ways to Get Updated on Singapore General Election 2011

As you may already know, Singapore General Election is just round the corner (7th May 2011). This time, for the first time, the social media was allowed to be used in the coming Election.

With Social Media as a way of communication, information travels faster and voters will be able to enjoy different views and interact with the candidates.

However, I do notice that there are so many channels that the different parties had set up for this election. So, for the ease of everyone (especially myself), I summarized their social profiles on this blog post.

Here are some figures about this Singapore General Election.

For the upcoming General Election, there will be 12 SMCs and 15 GRCs making a total of 27 constituencies and 87 MPs. There are altogether 2,350,873 electors on the registers of electors of these 27 constituencies (based on the number certified as on the prescribed cut-off date on 1 January 2011 and updated to include the number of non-voters whose names have been restored to the registers from 1 January 2011 up to the time when the Writ of election was issued on 19 April 2011.
