With the US presidential election less than two weeks away, Democrats and Republicans in Hong Kong are rallying supporters and encouraging their fellow Americans to vote. Democrats Abroad board member Andy Green said Democrats would hold two events today. A private fund-raiser will be held for major donors, while a Hong Kong-based American musician has organised a free concert, Jam for Obama, at the Fringe Club from 6.30pm to midnight. Concert organiser De Kai said: 'This is to get the vote out ... We're encouraging people to bring their absentee ballots and get them in. 'We'll help them to generate [forms] for FedEx to get the ballots overnighted for free back to the US.' Mr Green joined other Democrats last Thursday night to listen to a conference call with presidential candidate Barack Obama who told supporters to 'redouble [their] efforts between now and November 4'. Chris Exline, a Republicans Abroad board member, said his organisation had begun mobilising supporters after a debate-watching party last Thursday that proved to be a successful fund-raiser. Republicans Abroad also planned to contact every member and offer to meet them to discuss three important issues: 'lower taxes, free trade and constructive engagement with China', Mr Exline said. Debate clips and links would be posted on the group's website, he said. On November 5, the public is invited to 'Election Central' to watch the election results. The event - sponsored by the American Chamber of Commerce, the League of Women Voters in Hong Kong, Republicans Abroad, Democrats Abroad, the US consulate and the American Women's Association - takes place from 7am to 2pm at the HKUST Business School in the Hong Kong Club Building in Central.
