Sept. 11, 2015, is Polling Day.

Some 2.46 million voters in Singapore will get to cast their ballot. Out of this number, 245,500 of them are first-time voters.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “I’ve been looking forward to this day since GE2011 to once again pick who I want to rule and ruin my life.”
Zhuo Huang Di, 42-year-old joss stick maker

 

sian-half-uncle “I don’t see how democracy works when I am supposed to choose between two or even three idiots.”
Zhu Tou, 63-year-old butcher

 

happy-bird-girl “The fact that Polling Day can be a public holiday means Singapore can afford an extra off day a year but we’ve not been getting it.”
See Baey Xian, 17-year-old dropout
