On November 27, 2010 voters in Taiwan's metropolitan cities went to the polls to cast ballots for their mayors, city council members, and borough chiefs. Such elections are held every four years and are considered nearly as important as Taiwan's legislative and presidential elections. This paper seeks to analyze the municipal campaigns, political process, and election outcomes in order to predict their influence on the 2012 legislative and presidential elections.
