The Consulate General’s American Citizen Services (ACS) Unit, with the support of Democrats Abroad and Republicans Overseas, held a three-hour nonpartisan “American Voter Registration Event” on August 26 at The American Club in Central. The event was advertised to the greater American community in Hong Kong through the ACS website, ACS Twitter account, and the help of other U.S. organizations such as the American Chamber of Commerce. ACS Voting Assistance staff and volunteers from Democrats Abroad and Republicans Overseas answered voter registration questions from over 100 U.S. citizens. Ultimately, the Consulate collected 102 completed registration forms, with attendees taking an additional 55 forms home to give to their friends and family.
