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.
