SONG:
Party people going out tonight,
everybody just yell 凍蒜! (dong suan: get elected)
We're gonna make you lose your mind,
we just wanna see you...vote it!

The world is focused on the US presidential primaries. But did you know that Taiwan will elect its president on Saturday?

Taiwan is the only place in the Chinese-speaking world where people can freely choose their leaders. Voting is NOT something we take for granted.

Our choices: The KMT's Ma Ying-jeou, the incumbent president who has edged Taiwan closer to China. The DPP's Tsai Ing-wen, an academic and former vice-premier whose party favors independence from China. Or former Taiwan provincial governor and ex-KMT member James Soong, for people who want to waste their votes. Turnout typically tops 80 percent, and Taiwanese fly home from all over the world just to vote.
