Application for new registration

Only after you have registered as an elector can you exercise your right to vote in the Legislative Council and District Council elections. If you are a Hong Kong permanent resident aged 18 or above, and ordinarily reside in Hong Kong, you are eligible to sign up as a geographical constituency elector. If you are not a registered elector and you wish to be registered in a geographical constituency, you must complete the application form “Application for New Registration/Report on Change of Particulars by an Elector in a Geographical Constituency” (REO-GC).

Starting from the 2022 voter registration cycle, the final register of electors will be published annually in September. The statutory deadline for new registration application and report on change of particulars in a geographical constituency is 2 June of each year.

Note: The address proof requirement for new voter registration will be implemented with effect from 1 May 2022.
