Let’s thank Google Maps and Yudhishthra Nathan for helping all Singaporean voters make sense of the electoral boundaries changes.

The creator of the map is a fellow Singaporean who just completed his full-time National Service. He takes a great interest in maps and cartography and will be reading Environmental Studies at the National University of Singapore this year.

Understanding the electoral boundaries changes is important because about one in five voters (19.2 per cent) will find themselves in a new constituency. Yes, 472,790 voters will vote in a new ward, though this figure is fewer than the 2011 GE of 29.8 percent.

Now you can use this link, type your address and find out more about your constituency, your current MP, and which party he/she is from:
