Under the 2014 Voter Registration Campaign, which is now underway, eligible persons who have yet to register as electors are required to sign up on or before May 16 if their registration particulars are to be included in the final register, which will be released at the end of July later this year. Mr Andrew Leung, BPA Chairman, Ms Tong Po-chun, BPA District Council member, Mr Ricky Shen and Mr Chow Ping-him, BPA community affairs executives today (May 4) jointly set up a booth at the entrance of the Fo Tan MTR Station to urge the public to register as voters.
The BPA has also organised similar voter registration campaigns earlier in April in Tai Po, Shatin Wai and Fo Tan. To date, these efforts have helped nearly one thousand citizens to register as voters or update their registration particulars.
Mr Andrew Leung left for Fo Tan immediately after attending a Parents’ Day luncheon party in Hung Hom and donned a BPA Team vest bearing his name before joining BPA colleagues in actively appealing to local residents to register as voters. Mr Leung said, “Over the coming few years, Hong Kong will be holding elections for the District and Legislative Councils, as well as the much anticipated Chief Executive election in 2017. The public can exercise their civil rights by using their votes then!” He also reminded the public that as registered electors, “They should report any change in residential address or other registration particulars to the Registration and Electoral Office as soon as possible.”
BPA will continue to help eligible members of the public to register as voters through its district branch offices or by setting up temporary street stands.
|Interactions with local residents remained warm and enthusiastic in spite of the rain.|
