The cities of Almaty, Kazakhstan, and Beijing, People's Republic of China, are bidding to host the Olympic Winter Games 2022.

Voting Process

The IOC members will vote by secret ballot. IOC members from the countries involved do not take part in the vote. As there is no IOC member in Kazakhstan, only members from the People's Republic of China will not vote. The IOC President, Thomas Bach, elects not to vote. The Honorary President, Honorary and Honour members DO NOT vote.

A city will need a simple majority to be elected.

The detailed number of votes will be communicated straight after the announcement ceremony.
