DC election poll cards mailed

The Registration & Electoral Office today said it has mailed poll cards for the District Council Ordinary Election to about 4.33 million registered electors to inform them of where they should cast their votes on December 10.   Electors who have not received their poll cards may log in to the Online Voter Information Enquiry System to check whether they are registered electors and their designated polling stations, the office said.   District Council geographical constituency (DCGC) electors will be allocated to ordinary polling stations in the vicinity of their registered addresses. Polling hours will be from 8.30am to 10.30pm.   District Committees constituency (DCC) electors will be assigned to the polling stations of the DCCs to which they belong. The polling hours will be from 8.30am to 2.30pm. They will also receive a reminder on the poll card envelope that the DCC and DCGC vote will take place at two different polling stations with different polling hours.  

DC poll nominations start Oct 17

Election Affairs Commission Chairman David Lok today inspected the procedures for receiving nomination forms for the 2023 District Council Ordinary Election, before the nomination period begins. 


The nomination period for the election will run from tomorrow until October 30. 


Mr Lok visited the Returning Officer's office at the Central & Western District Office to inspect the procedures for receiving nomination forms and the preparatory work there.


He said arrangements at the offices of the Returning Officers at 18 districts are all ready and that staff will ensure the smooth operation of the work in receiving nomination forms.


In a briefing held earlier for the Returning Officers, Mr Lok highlighted their important roles and responsibilities as well as reminded them to carry out the electoral work in strict compliance with the relevant electoral laws and guidelines to ensure that the polls will be conducted in an open, fair and honest manner.


The Electoral Affairs Commission pointed out that a nominee for the District Council geographical constituency election and the District Committees constituency election must be a registered geographical constituency elector aged 21 or above.


They must also have ordinarily resided in Hong Kong for three years immediately preceding the date of the nomination. Each prospective candidate must also be subscribed by designated electors.


The committee added that nominees must submit completed nomination forms and the election deposit of $3,000 in person to the Returning Officer for the constituency concerned between 9am and 5pm from Mondays to Fridays and between 9am and noon on Saturdays within the nomination period.


They are also advised to submit their nominations as early as possible to allow time to correct possible mistakes in the nomination forms before the nomination period ends.

Nomination forms are available at the District Offices and the offices of the Registration & Electoral Office (REO). They can also be downloaded from the REO website and the election website.
