I don't. Yeah, I'm still pissed about that.
But I'm smiling, at least on the inside, that 1.2 million (1,222,884, to be precise) Singaporeans, or 56.65% of electors, will --- which is a darned sight more than the 675,306 or 33.15% that got to vote in the last General Elections in 2001. (Numbers crunched based on data available at the Elections Department website.)
If you are one of those 1.2 million who get to exercise your vote, please do the very least and find out a little about whoever's running in your constituency, and make an informed choice come Polling Day (6 May or next Saturday, if you missed the memo on that).
And read the instructions on your voting form so that you don't accidentally spoil your vote.
And don't you dare complain that you have to vote or that you have to do elections duty if you're an elections officer. Take responsibility for the kind of society that you want Singapore to be and do right by it. The remaining 935,820 of us in uncontested constituencies are watching you, enviously.
