The government said on Tuesday that those who cast a ballot in Sunday’s district council elections will be given a thank you card, as part of a slew of “thoughtful arrangements” to encourage people to vote.
In a statement, the government said apart from giving people who’ve voted a card, photo spots will also be set up outside polling stations for those who’d like to capture the moment and mark the occasion.
It said the card, which reads “Thank you for voting. Together we build a better community”, is designed by civil servants, and features iconic landmarks like the Lion Rock, Tsing Ma Bridge and Golden Bauhinia Square.
A government spokesman added that the photo spots will include signs that feature election mascots, the “Ballot Box Babies”.
The classic cantopop song, ‘Under the Lion Rock’, will also be given new lyrics and be performed by popular artists to boost people’s morale.
“The arrangements are simply meant to increase people’s awareness of the district councils and district council polls… people should cast their precious vote to pick their district councillor, and work towards building a better Hong Kong,” the spokesperson said.
