Elections Department to conduct sample counts on Polling Day

A total of 100 ballot papers from each polling station will be randomly picked and counted after voting ends, and the results made public for the first time.

How Sample Counts work: An early indication, though final results could differ:

Embedded image permalink

SINGAPORE: To prevent speculation and misinformation before election results are announced on Sep 11, the Elections Department (ELD) said it will be conducting sample counts after voting ends and releasing the results to the public.

This will be done at the start of the counting process at each of the 163 counting centres islandwide, once voting ends at 8pm.

A total of 100 ballot papers from each polling station will be randomly picked by a counting assistant in the presence of candidates and their counting agents. The votes will be added up, and weightage given, to account for the difference in the number of votes cast at each polling station.

The Assistant Returning Officer will then record the votes. The sample count for each constituency will be broadcast and published on the ELD website, while counting continues.

The sample count helps officials check against election results, the ELD said. The numbers are also said to be fairly indicative of the possible outcome for a constituency, although ELD has advised the public to wait for the announcement of the election results by the Returning Officer..

SINGAPORE—Polls closed Friday in a general election in Singapore in which the governing People’s Action Party was expected to face the biggest threat to its rule since the city-state gained independence 50 years ago.

Counting was due to begin after voting stations shut at 8 p.m. local time. A final result wasn’t expected until early Saturday in Singapore, where voting is mandatory for those aged 21 and over.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is hoping to reverse a setback at the 2011 election, when his party received a record-low 60.1% share of the popular vote, though it held on to 81 of the then 87 parliamentary seats. Discontent over the government’s immigration policies and the rising cost of living in Singapore, one of the world’s most expensive cities, contributed to the PAP’s fall in vote share. These issues have continued to dominate political discussion here, and a slowing economy has added to pressure on Mr. Lee’s administration.
