The post noted that the ballots are stored for six months under the custody of the Supreme Court to ensure that chain of custody is not broken. After which, the votes are destroyed. It pointed out that this process ensures that the votes are secret and took the opportunity of the event to remind the people that their vote is secret.

The post also expressed its appreciation of the hard work of its Polling Agents, as well as the Counting Agents, “who worked hard to ensure that the secret ballot system in Singapore is safeguarded and guaranteed”.

Also at the event were representatives of the other political parties that took part in GE2020.
