SINGAPORE -- Voting has ended in Singapore's general election, after residents streamed to the polls to choose the government that will lead them through the COVID-19 crisis.

Polling stations closed at 10 p.m. local time, two hours later than scheduled due to long queues at some locations. Initial results are expected to trickle out through the night, with the full makeup of the next parliament likely to be known by early Saturday morning.
