Chief Electoral Officer,
Whenever the Legislative Council General Election is held, voters will receive various promotional leaflets from candidates. As the number of voters increases each year, that means candidates produce more of these promotional leaflets as well. But do we need these leaflets when we can learn about the candidates via email and social media platforms?
In fact, email has become a widely used tool for candidates to promote themselves in recent years. So why are voters bombarded with unnecessary leaflets? Can voters opt out of receiving them in order to save our city from the paper waste? Can voters then opt in of receiving promotional emails instead?
