The 2019 HKADC Nomination Exercise was successfully completed on 22 October. Of the 6,846 registered voters, 3,184 cast votes for their representatives. The voter turnout rate was 46.5 per cent.
The polling and vote-counting were supervised by HKADC and conducted in a fair, open and smooth manner. The Council thanked the voters for their active participation, and believed it reflects the ardent wish of all arts workers for the development of the arts in Hong Kong.
Ballots were immediately counted upon completion of polling at 9pm yesterday. The following seven candidates received the highest number of votes and were returned in the arts interests they ran in respectively:
