The government received 94,500 applications to register to vote in Legco elections this year. With the 60,000 applications received earlier, it is confident of achieving a target of 150,000 new electors this year. Of the total 210,000 application forms received by the deadline last Friday, 45 per cent were registering as new voters, with the rest updating personal particulars, a spokesman said.
