Submit applications for voter registration and change of voter registration particulars by June 2

     The Registration and Electoral Office (REO) today (May 22) appeals to eligible persons/bodies who have not yet registered as geographical constituency (GC), functional constituency and/or Election Committee subsector electors/voters to submit registration applications on or before the statutory deadline of June 2, so that their registration particulars can be included in the final registers of electors/voters to be published in September this year.

     Hong Kong permanent residents holding an identity document, who have reached 18 years of age and are ordinarily residing in Hong Kong, are eligible to register as GC electors.

     There is no need for registered electors/voters to register again, but they should notify the REO of any changes in their residential address or other registration particulars by the statutory deadline of June 2.

     Application forms for new registration as GC electors or change of residential address by registered electors must be submitted along with address proof.

     A spokesperson for the REO said, "Applicants who are the registered occupants of public rental housing under the Housing Department or subsidised housing under the Hong Kong Housing Society do not need to submit address proof."

     Application forms for new registration and change of registration particulars are available at the REO, the District Offices and the management offices of public housing estates. They can also be downloaded from the Voter Registration website (
