“Is my vote really secret?”
That is the question on many Singaporeans’ minds. As part of our public education efforts, MARUAH has produced a video to explain to voters why their vote really is secret.
YOUR VOTE IS YOUR VOICE
(WITH CHINESE SUBTITLES: 你的选票，你的声音)
(WITH MALAY SUBTITLES: SUARA ANDA ADALAH SUARA ANDA)
This video was put together by a team of volunteers. For the first time on video, Singaporeans from different walks of life come together to speak about their voting experiences. A former Straits Times journalist who had witnessed the actual destruction of the ballot papers from the 2006 General Elections also speaks about what he saw.
The video explains the voting process, and what happens to ballot papers after they are counted.
