Abridged version of Hong Siew Kum's email (see full version on their webpage):
MARUAH (http://maruah.org/) is conducting an election watch project. A key component of this project is to validate that the polling process is indeed conducted in a free and fair manner, with voters feeling secure that their votes are secret.
We are asking all voters to complete an online survey on their experience in the polling stations. The survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete and you can complete the survey on your smartphone immediately after voting!
To participate, please do this:
- Read the survey form before going to vote, so that you will know what to look out for in the polling station. You can find the survey form at: http://is.gd/GEpolling
- Complete the survey on Polling Day itself.
We will only consider responses submitted after 8.05am on Polling Day, 07 May 2011 (polling starts at 8am). The survey will be closed sometime after 07 May 2011: 2359.
We hope to achieve a reasonable number of responses for this survey. Please persuade at least 10 people around you (family, relatives, friends or colleagues) to do this survey and to persuade others to participate as well.
With this ripple effect, we will be able to have the data to tell Singaporeans how the polling process has been conducted.
So please vote — and then do the survey.

Vice President, MARUAH
