Presidential Election 2011 Result (Inclusive of overseas vote)

The counting of overseas vote for the Presidential Election 2011 is completed. President-elect Dr Tony Tan received the most votes, at 1296 (38%), Dr Tan Cheng Bock had 1183 votes (35%), Mr Tan Jee Say had 709 (21%), and Mr Tan Kin Lian had 184 (5%). Since overseas count is less than the margin between the two frontrunners, they will change the outcome of the election. The two frontrunners for local votes are Dr Tony Tan Keng Yam at 744,397 votes (35.19%) and Dr Tan Cheng Bock at 737,128 votes (34.85%).

NOTE: The Channel News Asia article has the following errors:
  1. Tan Kin Lian overseas vote should have been 5.5% instead of 0.55%
  2. Total overseas vote 1296 + 1183 + 709 + 184 is not equal to 3,376 for overseas vote. I do not know where the 4 lost votes go to
