    Not the ballot paper, lah. The poll card which they sent to your family has an individual serial no. on each of the segmented card. My serial no. is 4 digits. Just nice to buy 4-D.

    congratulations! perhaps you are a first time voter. the home affairs minister has addressed this issue many times before. it is a measure to ensure the ballot paper is authentic. but, my view is that the ballot paper has other security features on/in it, so why the need for a serial no which can be traced to the voter in question?

    U sure they wrote on the actual voting slip? Strange. I noticed they wrote the serial no. of my poll card only on the counterfoil of my voting slip.

    i also do not agree having the serial number there, it makes it so suspicious. And when suspicion is aroused, trust becomes fragile.
    I lup SG, but SG don't love me...

    Seriously, i think Big Brother's watching everything.
    It would not take them that long to find out which way you voted if they wanted to. Otherwise they would not be able to produce demographic breakdown of the votes cast. It may not be available to the general public or event the OTHER parties, but I am sure JUNIOR will get this report if he did not get his 85% at a particular GRC ....

    I guess the serial no. written on the voting slip is to prevent fraud where extra slips could not slipped into the ballot boxes making it difficult to authenticate it from the genuine voters.

    With all voting slips serial numbered and the serial no. of your poll card written on the counterfoil of your voting slip, if they wanted to, it is possible to trace which way you voted. Whether they have done it or will do it, should any of the GRC goes the other direction, is another story.

    The calling out of your name & the 4-digit serial number is for the POLLING AGENT (the witness from each political party) to mark against their name list so that there is a check and balance that each eligible voter votes only once.

    The serial number behind your voting slip is only for "authenticity" purposes in case there is a dispute on the genuineness of the slip.

    Think about it...

    1.22 million voters, slips are counted in front of the potlictical parties, boxes are sealed & signed and kept in a vault for 6 months, no one allowed to open it unless there is a dispute and then infront of the political parties again. At the end of six months, the political parties inspect the seals and follow it to Tuas for burning. The only time the slips are seen by people is when is counted between 8pm 6 may to next day (at the most 24 hours).

    ...where got time to "scan" the slips? It takes about 340 hours (nearly 2 weeks) to scan them 24X7 assuming one second per slip. And where got chance to "open the box" without the opposition knowing.

    YOUR VOTE IS SECRET

    The myth of the voting slip has been around for the last 30 years... even before scanners

    I think it quicker then that. Now got scaning and automated tracking computer that can counter check such details in minutes. Farthermore the votes are in ballot box that they break into different sector or estate that cut down the amount to check in each GRC or single ward
