Hong Kong district council elections 2015

Hong Kong voters go to the polls on November 22 for the first time since 2014's Occupy protests. They will choose 431 representatives for the 18 district councils. As well as being a key test of voters' reaction to the pro-democracy protests, they also have implications for the 2016 Legislative Council elections, at which voters will get to choose five "super seat" lawmakers from a list of candidates nominated by district councillors.
