Special voter registration arrangement for eligible individuals/bodies to submit applications on or before July 5 to close soon
     With the special voter registration (VR) arrangement closing next Monday (July 5), the Registration and Electoral Office (REO) today (June 30) made the final call for individuals/bodies eligible under the Improving Electoral System (Consolidated Amendments) Ordinance 2021 to submit VR applications as soon as possible and no later than the special VR deadline of July 5, so that their registration particulars can be included in the 2021 final registers of voters/electors.

     The eligible individuals/bodies comprise:
  • individuals eligible to register as ex-officio members of the Election Committee (EC);
  • individuals and bodies eligible to register as EC subsector (SS) voters (whether they have registered previously or not); and
  • for Legislative Council functional constituencies (FCs), individuals and bodies that are no longer eligible to register in their original FC or whose original FC has been deleted while being eligible to register in another FC, as well as those who are newly eligible for registration in FCs.
     The specified VR application forms can be obtained from the offices of the REO, the District Offices and the management offices of public housing estates. They can also be downloaded from the VR webpage of the REO (www.reo.gov.hk/en/voter/register.htm). Completed application forms may be submitted no later than the statutory deadline of July 5 via the following channels:
  • By email to (form@reo.gov.hk) - please do not attach a large number of VR application forms to a single email and send it to the REO's email account, as the large file size may cause delivery failure;
  • Through the REO e-Form Upload Platform (www.reo-form.gov.hk) - if submitting via this channel, please take note of the application number generated by the system so that the application status may be checked afterwards when needed;
  • By post to the REO office, 13/F, Kowloonbay International Trade & Exhibition Centre, 1 Trademart Drive, Kowloon Bay - for applications submitted by post, the date of the postmark will be taken as the date of submission. The REO reminds members of the public to send out their application forms early in order not to miss the statutory deadline; or
  • By fax to 2891 1180.

     To assist the individuals and bodies concerned to submit VR applications, the REO will make special arrangements for its office on 13/F of Kowloonbay International Trade & Exhibition Centre, 1 Trademart Drive, Kowloon Bay, to remain open until 11.59pm on July 5 to receive application forms from members of the public who wish to submit the forms in person.
