COVID-19 has quieted the physical road to the Singapore General Elections 2020, but the digital footprint of this national event is very much loud and present.

As we’ve evinced, social media has been abuzz with #GE2020 material of late, what with parties learning of its significance to reach a wider and different target demographic.

Also, official media coverage about the Singapore General Elections 2020 remains ever-available during the stretch to polling day. The latter includes nomination day reports, political broadcasts from parties, and, of course, the final results from the polls.

Broadcasted over television, radio, and (thankfully) digital streaming platforms like meWATCH and YouTube, the #GE2020 coverage is no less comprehensive, even during compromised times.

We round up where you can watch the Singapore General Elections 2020 play out.

On 30 June, Nomination Day
