For several weeks, more than 100 children toured Hong Kong encouraging adults to vote in the Legco elections. The young volunteers, aged nine to 14, were part of a three-month campaign called Children's Eye on the Election organised by the Boys' & Girls' Clubs Association of Hong Kong. The Sunday before the election, they were out in force in busy districts such as Causeway Bay, Mongkok and Kwun Tong. Association director Justina Leung Ngai Mou-yin said: 'Although children have no right to vote, it doesn't mean they don't care about the election. 'They do have their own views and opinions. Society should give them more opportunities to express them.' Chan Kwok-bong, in charge of the campaign, said it was important to cultivate a sense of civic responsibility in children so they would become responsible citizens as adults - those who vote. Chow Miu-fan, 12, said people should exercise their rights and responsibilities as citizens by casting their votes. The Primary Six pupil said everyone eligible should cast their ballots. Wong Long-yan, 11, a Primary Five pupil, was excited about taking her message to the streets, despite some rude responses. She said the experience had taught her a great deal about the election and that helped with her civic education lessons. At each stop the children conducted their own survey of SAR voters. They distributed comment cards to passersby so they could record their views about the Government and the Legco. By the end of the day, nearly 3,000 people had taken part in the poll. About 37.2 per cent rated the SAR Government's performance as fair, 32 per cent as unsatisfactory and 30.8 per cent as good. And over 20 per cent said they hoped efforts to improve education and housing would top the agenda of the new Legco members.
