Lee Yan-hsiu (李彥秀), the KMT’s candidate for Taipei’s fourth electoral district, has distributed calendars that could be hung on door knobs to let residents know that she had been in their neighborhood. She has also been handing out traditional promotional items of sanitary tissues and paper towels.

In a bid to capture the votes of housewives in the same district, People First Party legislative candidate Vivian Huang (黃珊珊) has been distributing shopping bags emblazoned with a drawing of the candidate in anime style.
