The aim is to keep voters in Hong Kong on polling day, December 10. Government officials have been trying to play down the significance of a high turnout, even as they try to achieve one. This will be the biggest meeting in the Hong Kong Jockey Club's horse racing calendar. It could also help if the fun fairs and concert planned for December 9 could be extended by another day to help keep voters in the SAR. Unless they campaign hard to whip up enthusiasm, the help provided by fun fairs, concerts or even horse races will be limited.
