*Special Notice for Mandarin Speakers: The mail-in ballots received by nearly 29,000 voters contained an error in its Chinese translation. Mandarin speakers were instructed to choose up to three candidates for just two open City Council seats.
The correct wording should read in Chinese: 競選市議會議員 最多選 二人.
Ballots that have more than two candidates checked will automatically be voided.
