Voter Registration

Address Proofs

Applications for new voter registration and change of registered address must be submitted with address proofs issued in the last three months.

For applicants who are the authorised occupants of public rental housing under the Housing Department or registered residents in the tenancy of subsidised housing under the Hong Kong Housing Society applying for new voter registration/change of registered address, and that the addresses in the tenancy records match the residential addresses provided by them, the address proof requirement for such persons may be exempted.

However, residents of housing units under the Home Ownership Scheme or public housing units which have been sold (e.g. flats under the Tenants Purchase Scheme) fall outside the scope of exemption and the applicants concerned should provide valid address proofs.

For cases where the Electoral Registration Officer cannot cross check the applicant's particulars in the data matching with concerned department/organisation, the Officer may request the relevant applicant to provide an address proof when applying for new voter registration/change of registered address under sections 4 and 10A of the Electoral Affairs Commission (Registration of Electors)(Legislative Council Geographical Constituencies)(District Council Geographical Constituencies) Regulation (Cap. 541A).
