Hong Kong Voters Turn Out in Record Numbers for Pro-Democracy

Sunday marked one of the biggest elections in Hong Kong’s history.

Voters turned out in record numbers for the local district council elections, as more than 3 million people lined the streets.

This comes after about a half a year of protests have rocked the city.

While some votes are still being counted, it appears the pro-democracy supporters won by a landslide.

The election follows six months of both peaceful and violent protests that have divided the Chinese territory.
