3.23 Voting Methods at a Glance
Locations of Polling Stations
Because of the limited number of polling stations, POP encourages all Hong Kong citizens to cast their votes using personal computers or smartphones as far as possible, so as to allow polling stations to be used by citizens in need. Also, please be aware that due to security reasons, voting outside Hong Kong will not be allowed.
We welcome media to cover the voting process, especially the three formal polling stations wholly responsible by POP, there will be polling station officers providing support and arranging the interviews.
Fund Raising Progress Updates
The latest fund raising progress is as follows (as of noon on March 22, 2012):
Completion of Public Trial, Please Vote Again on 3.23
The trial period of online voting system of the “3.23 Civil Referendum Project” ended at 20:00 last night, all results of the trial voting are erased and will not be used in the final analysis of the “3.23 Civil Referendum Project”.
POP reminds those who have voted in the trial period to vote again on the actual voting day (23 March 00:00-20:00)
Guidelines to Civil Polling Stations
POP welcomes local organizations to set up polling stations of their own on 23 March to help citizens to vote online. POP has no connections with polling stations of this kind but hopes these organizations will follow the guidelines laid down by POP (please see the appendix), including no campaigning for votes near the polling station and allow voters inside the polling station to have enough room for thinking so as to guarantee the voting is conducted with high privacy.
