A procedure is presented for extracting the singularity from the kernel in Pocklington's electric field integral equation for thin wires. The modified kernel which results may be used to dramatically improve the computational efficiency of certain moment method formulations. A simple example is considered in which pulse basis functions and point matching are used. For this case, a convenient approximation of the self-term is also derived.
