voting are secret in micro level. but not in macro level.

why there are boxes? why different people going different schools?

imagine blk A got lower half ppl (imagine 16 floor block) go school A
than higher half ppl go sch B.

when they count, sch A got 75% voted for current party.

that would generally mean that IN GENERAL, the lower half of that particular block A got roughly 75% voted for current party.

than go sch B. scarly, 99% voted opposition. and the block's high half go sch B that is pretty confirmed that higher half of that block voted for opposition. AND! if u damn suay stayed at that higher half and is the only 1% to vote for the current party..... than u know lah....

so they wouldn't know IN EXACT! but they arga arga......

but when words of mouth pass, the arga arga start lossing the words and from arga arga become arga. than arge becom sure knoW......wa piang... hahahaha....

i voted for depending on candidate...

IF sembawang that Tan pei ling come.... sry my vote will go on to opposition. cause there was once had a sharing session with her, felt she very......... off focus, and dislike the way she see volunteers. so she lost my support on the spot..... but other than her, the rest depending on what they can bring to us....

I'm more inclined to vote for the opposition.

Different people look at election in a different way. I look at it more from the point of National level, where PAP has for years, push through their policies, without any resistance, even when the whole world complains. What they only need to do, and they do that all the time, is to enforce the party whip. And all PAP MPs hv to vote along party lines, whether they agree or not. Should we have a casino ? Like it or not .... All PAP MPs hv to vote yes. CPF withdrawal to 65yrs old ? All PAP hv to vote yes. I'll prefer someone to vote NO.

But I think a lot of people view elections on a constituency level. The people seem to be more concerned with bread and butter issues. Lift upgradings, flat upgradings, sheltered walkways, PAP kindergarden, market etc

That's why I think the opposition candidates are not doing enough. They need to walk the ground. Online indications will appear to favour the opposition but when it comes to the ballot box, it's a whole different ballgame altogether.

Even if it does not affect civil servants even though after they have voted for the oppositon, they would still go for the ruling party.

Simple logic. They do not want to lose their comfortable job and slog it out in the private sector.

To them, too much to lose. Too comfortable. Not willing to sacrifice.

same same.. wld like more opposition in parliament but will not vote out the stalwarts like MM, SM, PM and a few other competent ministers.
The rest are all dispensible.
Why? In order not to rock the system too much lor. Retain some form of continuity.

So if I opposition, will concentrate on the easier to pick SMCs or even GRCs with not so strong anchors.

There is really no justification for GRCs, PAP is simply using GRCs to bring in the unvote-ables.., those who would otherwise not get a chance to be voted in.
We shld try to get rid of this GRC thingy, but HOW???
