2020 final registers of electors published today
"A total of 4 466 944 electors are carried in the newly issued final register for the geographical constituencies. These registered electors are eligible to vote in the 2020 Legislative Council General Election on September 6," a spokesman for the Registration and Electoral Office (REO) said.
The distribution of electors for the five geographical constituencies is as follows:
|Geographical constituency||Number of electors|
|Hong Kong Island||707 277|
|Kowloon West||602 733|
|Kowloon East||709 237|
|New Territories West||1 308 081|
|New Territories East||1 139 616|
The final register for the District Council (second) functional constituency contains 4 196 680 electors.
For the functional constituencies (other than the District Council (second) functional constituency), 250 452 electors are listed in the final register.
The final register for the Election Committee subsectors contains 257 992 voters.
"A net increase of about 11 600 of registered electors has been recorded in the 2020 final registers compared to the provisional registers. The figures reflect the follow-up actions by the REO with the applicants after the publication of the provisional registers, which mainly include people who returned the reply slips in time to the REO to resume their voter registration status, and those who supplemented the REO with the required information. With the approval of the Revising Officer, they have been included in the final register," the spokesman said.
The electoral records of about 1 063 000 electors of geographical constituencies have been updated for the compilation of the final registers.
Statistical information about these final registers is available on the voter registration website (www.voterregistration.gov.hk).
Full copies of the final registers for geographical constituencies, functional constituencies (other than the District Council (second) functional constituency) and Election Committee subsectors will be placed at REO's two offices located at 10/F, Harbour Centre, 25 Harbour Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong and 13/F, the Kowloonbay International Trade & Exhibition Centre, 1 Trademart Drive, Kowloon Bay, Kowloon. In accordance with the judgment of the judicial review case of the Junior Police Officers' Association handed down by the Court of Appeal on May 21 and the order made at the hearing on May 27 [Case no.: CACV 73/2020], the aforementioned registers of electors are available for inspection during the REO's ordinary business hours by validly nominated candidates, members of the press (for operational considerations, the REO adopts the list of subscribers of the Government News and Media Information System) and political parties (i.e. political bodies/organisations which meet the specified requirements). As for the parts of the final registers for functional constituencies and the Election Committee Subsectors which do not show the linked information of individual electors (i.e. their names and principal residential addresses), they are available for public inspection.
The REO will provide six inspection time slots (one hour for each time slot) on each working day. Eligible organisations/persons/members of the public may make appointments for inspection on a first-come, first-served basis.
