election fever is in the air. like i told some of my friends before i left for australia to babysit my grandson, this year's election will be interesting and more exciting than all the previous ones. people are more open and they are not so fearful. the electorate, especially, some of the younger ones, are openly declaring that they will vote for the opposition. those of my parents' generation actually kept their vote secret; they would not even reveal their choice to their own children.
in the late 50s or early 60s, when i was in primary school, i remembered singing the election day song. this song was intended to tell the people that voting was compulsory; that their vote was a secret (it still is); and that their choice could affect the future of the country.
our election day is on the 30th may
do please remember that you must vote
only you will know whom you voted for
do remember on our choice depends
the future trends of singapore
so go to the polls on 30th may
