Personnel from district offices arrived to confirm the inventory and take the ballots. A recall election to decide the fate of Legislator Chen Po-wei is taking place on Oct. 23. The Ministry of Finance Printing Plant was responsible for printing the ballots and has strictly monitored the movements of personnel ahead of the election. Police were also present to ensure that the process of distributing ballots would proceed smoothly.

Huang Ping-chun, Captain, Chenggong Police Station:"The police officers are all armed with rifles and pistols to ensure the transport process of the ballots proceeds smoothly."

The police say the printing of the ballots was completed on Oct. 19. On Oct. 20, they were checked and packed. On Oct. 21, district office personnel arrived to pick them up. The police guarded the ballots during the entire process, and also sent police cars to escort the ballots to district offices. The police presence will remain heavy in the run-up to the election, and patrols will be stepped up for district offices. 

Huang Ping-chun, Captain, Chenggong Police Station:"The police and the district offices coordinated to go to the printing plant, pick up the recall ballots, and transport them back to the district offices. We have sent police to stand guard over the ballots throughout the process."

The Taichung City Election Commission says 294,000 constituents are eligible to vote in the recall election. The number of "yes" votes needed to recall Chen is 73,000, and the number of votes for a recall must exceed the number of votes against a recall. Ballots will be delivered to polling stations at 7 a.m. on the day of the recall and voting will commence at 8 a.m.
