Election Collection

A candidate in Yunlin county hangs a sign at a junction of minor roads.

Well, the November local elections are coming up in less than two months. Once again, a view of some of the election posters I've seen in my travels in the last few weeks. No sign of President Ma on any KMT signs! A sure sign of his (un)popularity. Click on READ MORE to see more.

KMT candidate overlooks a road.

Education is my priority, he says

A candidate's banners line a bridge.

At a big intersection in Zhushan.

This on faces the one above.

Taiwan has scores of female candidates.

I dunno why he uses a scooter. Many candidates prefer more athletic props.

Rejects corrupt money, he says.

Like this candidate, many signs mention public construction.

It's sometimes difficult to tell the candidate's sign among a heap of other signs.

This KMT candidate says "Youth builds Taichung". His sign also mentions that he has a masters degree.

Nantou candidates.

He promises efficient service.

He says old people are not a burden and they should get all their money.

Hsinchu candidate.

Like almost all candidates, this one offers vague feel-good promises about making Hsinchu's fortune.

Another candidate puts public construction as a positive.

These candidates tout their aboriginal origins.

Engineering masters degree!

Xionglin is our home...

This candidate focuses on hospitals.

Notably, the popular DPP mayoral candidate is on many DPP signs in Taichung.

A common solution -- sign hung on betel nut trees.

That has to be the worst pose ever.

Change! A common phrase on signs.

Someone should go around and put big stickers on the KMT posters that say something like "Endorsed by Ma" or "Aligned with Ma"

CPC is a state company?
How can they allow using their roof for a candidate?
