Updated at 4.16pm on Sunday: Some parts of Hong Kong island took on a carnival-like atmosphere on Sunday as election candidates make last-ditch efforts to attract voters to their causes. Flags, leaflets, amplifiers and advertising vehicles were numerous on some streets as major political stars, mainly from the pro-democratic camp and pro-Beijing camp, sought to gain enough votes to win the six island seats up for grabs. The election was spiced up by speculation that former Democratic Party chairman Martin Lee Chiu-ming might lose his seat. Travelling from the Kennedy Town, to Central, to Causeway Bay and North Point by bus, SCMP.com observed that the DAB promotions were the most dominant throughout the island. The pro-democratic camp, however, seemed to concentrate its energies in Kennedy Town. Counters were set up in streets with helpers distributing leaflets about the candidates. Promotions were particularly frantic in areas in residential areas to encourage people to get out of their homes and vote. SCMP.COM met pro-democratic candidate Audrey Eu Yuet-mee at Kennedy Town at noon, where she was speaking to the public and asking people to vote. 'If you have voted, please give your relatives and friends a call now to ask them to vote,' she said. She told residents that the election was important because it would affect the progress of Hong Kong's constitutional development and the Article 23 proposed legislation. Ms Eu also frequently stopped by and talked to residents. At North Point, posters of DAB's Choy So-yuk and pro-Beijing candidate Rita Fan Hsu Lai-tai were prolific. Interviewed by SCMP.COM, many residents said they had already voted in the morning. Latest government statistics showed that 123,902 electors in the Hong Kong Island have cast votes up to 1.30pm. This represents 20.03 per cent of the voters on the Island.
