There are just four days left before the mayoral and county commissioner elections in Taiwan on Saturday. The opposition Kuomintang’s Chiayi mayoral candidate Huang Min-hui was seen on Tuesday on her campaign truck with her supporters sweeping the streets to gain votes.


Such campaign trucks are commonplace around election time. It has a standing platform on top with metal railings on the sides. Huang is in the front with a red sash across her chest while a supporter speaks into a microphone. Her speeches and slogans are broadcast through four large-size speakers, two mounted at the front of the truck and two at the back.


Meanwhile, everyone is seen holding up two fingers to signify Huang’s number on the ballot.
