With exactly one month to go until Taiwan’s presidential and legislative elections on January 14, I want to share some good sources of English information about what is going on.
- Ballots & Bullets
Comprehensive campaign coverage by Taiwan scholars, hosted at the University of Nottingham.

Analysis and in-depth information, especially about the legislative elections.
- The ‘Oops’ Count
How the parties screwed up during campaigning so far.
- Taiwanese Election Campaign Ads
Nice collection of campaign videos.
- ROC elections and referendums
Exact figures for all democratic elections after the lifting of martial law, as well as inaugural speeches.
- Kuomintang News Network
Press releases and translations of editorials.

- International Committee for Fair Elections in Taiwan
A “group of national and international democracy leaders and experts” wants to “enlist the moral authority and political leadership of the civilized international community to protect our forthcoming elections”.

Except for the party homepage, I am not aware of more English info by the KMT. I also did not find anything from the PFP. Suggestions are welcome.
