The road to elections is a series of articles and info-graphics that capture Singaporean thoughts on social media as Singapore shapes up to its 12th General election since its independence in 1965.
Yesterday’s announcement on the latest Electoral boundary Report marks the trigger point of the upcoming elections. The PM is expected to dissolve parliament within the next two months and call for all Singaporeans to cast their votes to decide the future of Singapore for the next 5 years.
Since the news broke out, many news sites have been digesting the numbers to give bite-sized information to the public for greater clarity and understanding.
Mothership.sg went full throttle churning out 7 articles within 12 hours and covered everything from what you need to know in 60 seconds to gifs which makes you understand the boundaries in even lesser time.
National Broadsheets such as The Straits Times had 8 full pages in the main section to cover everything from the changes in the boundaries to the individual comments by PAP and opposition leaders on what this elections means to them.
Even Google search looks something like this.
The Road to Elections is well underway but with so many paragraphs to read, what exactly are we reading for. You cannot be a neutral and say ‘I’m just here for the comments and eat popcorns by the side as a spectator because when the time comes, you have to vote, and there can only be one vote ‘
Our road to elections series is a collection of articles and infographics that capture Singaporean thoughts on social media as Singapore shapes up to its 12th General election since its independence in 1965.
