    Note 2 : A subsector bearing the same or similar name as an FC is called a “corresponding subsector”. Section 8(7)(c) of Schedule 2 of the LegCo Ord

    provides that a person who is registered, or has made an application to be registered, as an elector for an FC with a corresponding subsector may be

    registered only as a voter for that subsector (whether or not the person is eligible to be registered as a voter for any other subsector), except that, if the

     the person may choose to be registered as a voter in the corresponding subsector or in one of the above 8 subsectors for which he is eligible. The

    choice of subsector will not affect a person‟s registration in an FC. The above 8 subsectors are referred to as “optional subsectors” in Part IV of the

    EAC (R) (FCSEC) Reg.

    Note 3 : Out of the 8 “optional subsectors”, there are 6 “listed subsectors” referred to in Part IV of the EAC (R) (FCSEC) Reg. These “listed subsectors” have

    a small potential electorate. A special notification arrangement is provided for in section 15 of the EAC (R) (FCSEC) Reg to register as many voters
